High Falls Film Festival Celebrates Women in Film

After a one-year haitus, the High Falls Film Festival returns to its roots with a focus on women in film.
The 11th festival runs April 18th through the 21st with more than 50 films, panel discussions, coffee chats with directors, opening and closing night parties and other events at various venues in Rochester.
Executive Director Mary Howard says the community wanted the festival to renew its comittment to women in film.
The festival kicks off with a showing of the 1940 Cary Grant-Rosalind Russell film "His Girl Friday."
During the festival's run, audiences will decide the two "Best of the Fest" films.
WXXI TV will broadcast that film on April 14th, and there will also be a free screening of that movie and panel discussion at the Central Library's Kate Gleason Auditorium.
