FILM | Fast Forward Film Festival



On Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, get into the spirit of Earth Week with the first Fast Forward Film Festival. This event challenged local filmmakers to create a short film (under five minutes in length) to raise awareness for an environmental cause of their choosing. On Friday, the Little Theatre will host a screening of the top 16 films selected by the festival jury, narrowed down from the nearly 100 entries that were received. Then on Saturday, the Dryden Theatre will hold a Festival Gala and Awards Ceremony, including a second screening of the films in competition for cash prizes. Categories include "Most Compelling, Engaging, and Inspiring"; "Most Unique Perspective"; and the "Strongest Call to Action." Following the screening, there will also be a public vote for the Audience Choice Award.

Friday evening's screening will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students with ID, seniors (65+), and Little Theatre members. Saturday's Festival Gala starts at 5:30 p.m., with the Finalist Screenings & Award Ceremony set to begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for this two-part event include entrance to the Eastman House and gardens and are $25 for adults and $20 for students (with ID) and seniors (65+).
