Rochester’s 24th Annual International Film Festival

By Neath Folger

It’s time for Rochester’s 24th annual International Film Festival!  It starts Friday, April 12 and runs through through Sat, April 20 at the Marcus Theatres. The website (www.rifg.org) has the schedule, descriptions and trailers of all 29 films. All seats are reserved. At the present moment only about half the films are on Marcus' website because of some technical problems which we hope will soon be fixed.  To buy tickets, you can go to the Rochester International Film Group’s website or the Marcus website.

One film which of particular medical interest is a documentary called "Breakthrough". In the description on the website, it says in part, "A thoroughly enthralling portrait of the 2018 Nobel Prize-winning scientist Jim Allison–an
unconventional, harmonica-playing Texas scientist".

Call some friends and make a date to attend one or more films next week.
