Genesee ARC Presents the Sprout Film Festival


In celebration of our 45th anniversary year Genesee ARC is sponsoring a local screening of the Sprout Film Festival. The event, which showcases films by and about people with developmental disabilities will be held Saturday March 19 at the Batavia High School auditorium.

Sprout is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1979. The mission of the New York City-based organization is to provide innovative programming that raises the profile and showcases the work of people with developmental disabilities.

The local showing will include a selection of short films, ranging from documentaries to music videos. Some films are moving, enlightening and inspirational; others are humorous, whimsical and fun.  Each film will be introduced by a Sprout representative.  There are two show times, and 2:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.and donations are gratefully accepted.

The Sprout Film Festival is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council.  Any one with questions may call ARC Director of Development, Shelley Falitico at 343-1123 ext. 231.
