International Film Festival to be presented virtually

The show must go on!

Movies on a Shoestring Inc. will present the 62nd Rochester International Film Festival from June 21 through 27. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s films will be presented virtually, the organization said this week.

Twenty-eight short films from nine countries and across the U.S. will be available for viewing at home. The films include animations, documentaries and narratives from two to 29 minutes each, officials said. Titles include “Butterfly Effect,” “Ironrite,” “Extra Innings,” “Dementia” and more.

The films will be free to watch, with donations accepted.

Movies on a Shoestring is an independent nonprofit run by volunteers. The organization was founded in 1959 and is charged with holding the annual festival, billed as the oldest continuously held short film festival in the world.

Each festival includes a wide variety of original and imaginative works by filmmakers from around the world.
