PURCELLVILLE, Va. January 11, 2021—The fourth annual Purcellville Cabin Fever Film Festival kicks off with a slate of 15 films that highlight Loudoun filmmakers. This year’s films are in the categories of Live Action Short, Documentary Short, Stop Motion, and Music Video, all shot by Purcellville area residents or filmmakers with ties to Purcellville. Break that cabin fever in late-January and enjoy the fourth year of Purcellville’s only film festival!
All the films will be shown on Friday evening and repeated Saturday to maximize the viewing opportunities, since audience size is limited to 50 people each day.
