DEAR FILM LOVERS
Welcome to the Third Annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging.
Our mission for the festival is to present films that inspire, educate and entertain intergenerational audiences about the issues surrounding aging.
The U.S. population of adults over age 50 has grown to 95 million, and the 77 million baby boomers began to turn 65 this year. Sooner or later, we'll all be old, if we're lucky.
How to live later life meaningfully is the subject of the festival, with unique portrayals of adventurous and courageous people.
So come and be entertained, educated and inspired!

We only wish we could have seen every one (of the films). Maybe next time!
I found it very compelling to see film presented as a way to foster a different understanding about aging.
Who would have thought growing old was so hard? The films only add to the support. I really, truly think they can make a difference in others’ lives and I think they serve a far greater purpose than just entertainment.
With such a large aging population I can’t think of anything more inspiring than being able to see how others cope.
