The WVIFF is committed to showcasing the amazing talent from within our state, whether it is the West Virginia-grown popcorn sold in our movie theater, West Virginia artists who design our t-shirts, or, of course, the films made by, about, and in the Mountain State.

Every month, for at least the first two Wednesdays of the month, the WVIFF showcases a film with ties to the state. From documentaries, horror, comedies, and everything in between, this is a chance to show off the great films with ties to our home.

All of the West Virginia-connected films we have shown at the Underground Cinema in 2019 will be considered for the Pammy Award, in the Spring of 2020, held at the WVIFF’s annual Oscar Party!

What is the Pammy Award?

The Pamela Haynes Award for Excellence in West Virginia Filmmaking (“Pammy”) is a new, annual award given by the WVIFF. Pam Haynes is the former Executive Director of the (now-defunct) West Virginia Film Office and former Executive Director and Board President of the WVIFF. Each year at our Oscar Party, the WVIFF will award the Pammy, as selected from the previous year’s best West Virginia-connected films shown at the Underground Cinema.
