There is a short film festival, the Rochester International Short Film Festival, occurring at the Dryden the very next week. That international festival shows the environment through the lens of many cultures. Filmmakers from around the world attend with their short films, speak to the attendees about their films, and stay with local families in the Rochester area. Movies on a Shoestring does not charge admission (thus allowing the filmmakers to have a large audiences to see their films), nor give out monetary prizes. The festival promotes and supports the art of small film making.
