Dear film lovers
The 7th Annual Film Festival on Aging celebrates the aging process as profound and meaningful, often challenging, and always courageous. Will we ‘age gracefully’, or crankily, or painfully? Or defiantly? Our filmmakers portray some of the many facets of this unique, ever-changing experience honestly and artfully and always with compassion and love for their subjects. In the post-film Q&A’s, we want to hear what you have to say.
Thank you for being here.
