2019 Announcement

Over the past four years, the Fast Forward Film Festival has engaged hundreds of local filmmakers, environmentalists, and active citizens in important conversations — looking at our city, our world, our leaders, and ourselves for stories and inspired solutions to environmental problems.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Fast Forward Film Festival will not light up the local theatre screens in 2019. Festival staff is hopeful that, with the support of a nonprofit to adopt the FFFF initiative, the festival will return bigger and better than ever in 2020, just in time to celebrate Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary.

Thank you for your ongoing participation in and support of the Fast Forward Film Festival. We’re seeking requests and recommendations for nonprofit partners to help ensure the festival mission continues to provide a platform for environmental expression and inspiration in Rochester. Requests and recommendations may be forwarded to Claire Sauter, External Communications, at claire@thecausecollab.org. Thank you, and we hope to see you in 2020!
