Welcome to our 13th Year!


This is our 13th Film Festival - our Bar Mitzvah year!

Join us for a weeklong celebration of unique and contemporary films from around the world, post-film panel discussions, a visiting filmmaker opening night and a grand Bar Mitzvah party closing night. Leading our line-up of exceptional films is the award winning “Life in Stills” with a traveling photo exhibit from Israel that will be on display at the George Eastman House opening night.

Your support allows us the financial ability to create and offer this wonderful festival. We thank you for your generous loyalty. All Festival Passes are on sale now - purchase one and gain early access to the theaters.

See you at the movies,

Lori Michlin Harter, Director

Frederick P. Burger, Chair
