After 22 years with the Virginia Film Office Mary Nelson is retiring as Deputy Director 6/1.  “My time with the Film Office had given me wonderful opportunities and allowed me to work with some exceptional people, but it’s now time for me to go in search of new adventures.  I’m happy to report that I will continue to work the Film Office on special projects. I’m honored to have been a part of Virginia’s film community all these years, and I’m glad that will continue.  It’s been a wonderful ride.  Thanks for the memories.”

VFO Director Andy Edmunds said, “Mary’s institutional knowledge of the film and television industry is very deep. While we will miss having her around every day, we are very pleased that she will continue to target key projects for our industry; especially as a liaison with the Virginia Production Alliance. Thank you Mary for your many years of service to the VFO.”
