Fast Forward Film Festival Rochester

The Fast Forward Film Festival encourages films that tap into the local experience and compel audiences to engage with the community and raise environmental awareness. 

Embracing the short film format, Fast Forward challenges filmmakers to utilize the power of visual storytelling to convey the urgency of our environmental problems and inspire environmental awareness.  Shorts are a liberating form that allow for greater experimentation and give voice to both aspiring and veteran filmmakers. By focusing creativity into films under five minutes in length, Fast Forward films become an important communication tool to promote change, connect people and build an environmentally concerned community.

The Fast Forward Film Festival is an initiative of the non-profit, Lost Bird.
