This Film Festival is hosted by Mr. Jeffrey Lyons, of SNEAK PREVIEWS nationally known film reviewer. Each September since 1981, the Festival has presented four days of programs. The program includes time-honored film classics, premieres, foreign and documentary features, educational presentations, children's movies and a selection of films that are representative of the work of our featured guests.
Throughout the weekend, writers, directors, and producers and performing artists discuss their work directly with audiences in casual settings.
