Our Community

Welcome to Blacksburg!

Progeny is proud to call Appalachia and Blacksburg, VA our home.

Make a visit to our lovely town and be sure to catch a performance at the Moss Arts Center or a film at the Lyric Theatre before the festival. Visit Blacksburg’s locally owned coffee shops, breweries, restaurants, taverns and boutiques. Take a look at our beautiful campus dressed in its autumn colors that inspire our local films as well as the wonderful Appalachian Mountains with their many hiking trails.

During your time with us at Progeny, experience a great Southwest Virginia community, one of many which inspire the films we celebrate at our festival.
