It's a wrap for the 26th year of the Virginia Film Festival.

The four-day festival featured more than 100 films, and there were lots of eager audiences. Organizers said almost every screening has been full.

Last year's 25th anniversary event shattered attendance records, but the festival director said he expects to top last year's numbers now, as people poured into theaters over the last few days.

"My hope is that they're really happy about seeing some really great cinemas, some of the very best cinema that will be out there this year, and on top of that I think most of the people really love the community engagement," festival director Jody Kielbasa said. "We have a number of films here that spotlight Virginia, and in this case, Charlottesville filmmakers."

Organizers plan to release final attendance numbers on Tuesday.
