FILM | Best of the Fests


Film lovers this week will get a second chance to see some audience favorites previously screened during three of Rochester's annual film festivals. The collaborative event, "Best of the Fests" — between the High Falls Film Festival, the Rochester International Jewish Film Festival, and ImageOut LGBT Film Festival — shares each festival's "best" movies with a broader film-loving audience. "Best of the Fests" will take place Wednesday, April 27, through Friday, April 29, at the Little Theatre (240 East Avenue), and features two audience-favorite winning movies from each festival. The selections from High Falls Film Festival are "Yemeniettes" and "The Lennon Report"; from the RIJFF are "Above and Beyond" and "Dough"; and from ImageOut are "The Guy with the Knife" and "Akron."

Screenings take place at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. each night. Tickets are $8, or $6.50 for JCC, ImageOut, and Little Theatre members. To order tickets, view a screening schedule, or learn more about each film, visit Tickets can also be purchased at the box office prior to the screenings.
