The Sprout Film Festival returns to Genesee County on Saturday, March 31, at the Genesee ARC Community Center, 38 Woodrow Road in Batavia. Sprout is a nonprofit that holds a yearly festival in New York City and opens its library of films from around the world so the "touring festival" can travel all over the country.
Two 90-minute showings are scheduled at 1 and 5 p.m., offering a unique lineup of different films, ranging from two-and-a-half minutes to 25 minutes in length. Both sessions are open to the public and there is no charge to attend. Doors open at noon and artwork by local residents with disabilities is also featured. Refreshments will be available for sale from noon to 1 p.m. and between shows.
