FILM | Best of the Fests


It's no secret that Rochester is home to some terrific film festivals, and with so many great options it can be difficult for even the most diehard of film buffs to get to them all. To make things a little easier on those with a passion for cinema, three of Rochester largest film festivals will be teaming up this week to present a "Best of The Fests" mini film festival.

Held at the Little Theatre from Wednesday, June 3, through Friday, June 6, the event is a collaboration between the ImageOut LGBT Film Festival, High Falls Film Festival, and the Rochester International Jewish Film Festival. "Best of the Fests" will allow each of the festivals to screen two standout films from their past seasons, giving anyone who may have missed them the first time around another chance to see the best of what these festivals can offer. Things kick off Wednesday with the acclaimed documentary, "The Dog," about John Wojtowicz (the real-life inspiration for Al Pacino's character in the classic film "Dog Day Afternoon"), followed by the Israeli drama "Brothers." Tickets to each film are $8 ($6.50 for JCC, ImageOut, and Little Theatre members) and will be on sale online and at the Little Theatre box office. For a full list of the films being screened visit
