Huge thanks to Mary Howard & the High Falls Film Festival Team (Bree, Chris, Kate, Tony, etc, etc) for a fabulous festival… returning the festival to Rochester’s historic commitment to women filmmakers. Susan B. Anthony would be so proud!
I went to Rochester on Thurs AM (taking the train from Penn Station for the first time!) & returned on Sun PM. In between, I met many wonderfully talented filmmakers & lots of passionate, knowledgeable film fans. BRAVA, ROCHESTER 🙂
PS: I donated a box of my book Penny’s Picks to the Festival to help them raise funds for next year. Special thanks to HFFF Programming Director Kate Dobbertin Bernola for helping me promote them.
With Judy Chaiken, the creator of The Girls in the Band (winner of HFFF’s Audience Award for Best Documentary). Brava, Judy!!!
