Holiday Greetings

Dear friend:

2011 has been an incredible year for the Cinevolution. We were the Finalist of the Cultural Leadership Award of the 2011 Richmond Arts Awards, and the successful transition of our annual festival, from New Asia to Your Kontinent, has established us firmly in the community. Without your trust in our shared vision and tremendous support, these could not have been achieved!

Stay tuned to our many new initiatives in the new year, and Your Kontinent: Richmond International Film and Media Arts Festival will be back in July 2012 with an even more innovative and exciting program!
