After a one-year hiatus, the High Falls Film Festival
will open April 18 and runs through April 21 at The Little Theatre, The Dryden Theatre, and The Cinema Theater.
This festival is one of the longest running women's film festivals on the East Coast. This year, it features more than 50 films from 12 countries.
The festival chair, Mary Howard, was joined by various sponsors Tuesday to announce the line-up.
Festival organizers say that this years films offer something for everyone.
"We want to encourage people to come out and take a look at what's being done in the film industry in terms of independent film makers," Howard said. "There are so many great films to touch your heart and mind; make you think differently maybe, make you change an opinion about something. It really is a great way to see what's being done."
The festival was founded in 2001. It spotlights women in motion pictures and all aspects of film making and honors Rochester's history in film.
It is estimated that the festival will have a million dollar impact on the Rochester economy.
Tickets go on sale Friday.
