The Fast Forward Film Festival debuts tonight at the Little Theater.

The event features two nights of screenings of short films made by local professional and aspiring film makers that raise awareness about environmental issues.

One of those films is called "Ain't No Fish", co-directed by professional animator and RIT professor Tom Gasek.  It's a short stop motion animated film featuring singing seals, but it delivers a powerful message about the plight of our oceans.

Tom tells says he actually started working on this short film in the early 1990s.
