It's back. And this time, it means business. The second annual High Falls Film Festival returns to Rochester with the best cinema has to offer... or, more specifically, movies that highlight the involvement of women in film, both in front of and behind the camera. Running from October 30 to November 3 at the Little Theatre (240 East Avenue), and the Dryden and Curtis Theatres at the George Eastman House (990 East Avenue), the Festival offers some of the best independent and foreign films out there, including seven winners from this year's Sundance Film Festival (see our interview with Waldo Salt Screenwriting winner and Fairport native Gordy Hoffman on page 11).
But High Falls is more than just movies. There will be a handful of very interesting seminars, a chance to meet Bart Simpson, and, of course, parties at which you might run into your favorite celebrity.
You can buy tickets through Ticket Express (in person only at 100 East Avenue). Same-day tickets can be purchased at the venue of that particular screening, but not until one hour before the event begins. They'll run you $7.50 apiece, but packages are available if you plan on going hog wild. And you should: Last year's Audience Award winner --- No Man's Land --- went on to topple the unstoppable Amélie in Oscar's Foreign Film race.For our full coverage of the High Falls Film Festival, click here.
