The 7th Annual Film Festival on Aging celebrated the aging process as profound and meaningful, often challenging, and always courageous. Will we ‘age gracefully’, or crankily, or painfully? Or defiantly? Our filmmakers portrayed some of the many facets of this unique, ever-changing experience honestly and artfully and always with compassion and love for their subjects.

In 2017, our beloved board member, Alan Klaum, age 83, passed away. We celebrate the joy, friendship, and dedication he shared with us from our beginnings in 2011.

Thank you for being there.

Meet Board Member & Film Curator Arlene Reiff
Arlene Reiff, LFFoA board memberThis is my fourth year of involvement as a member of the board and film curator for the Legacy Film Festival on Aging. It has been a truly meaningful and dynamic experience for me to team up with Sheila Malkind, our passionate executive director, the dedicated men and women who are members of the board, our screening panel, who research and review hundreds of films and the core of volunteers, who help us each year at the festival.

It takes a lot of commitment and energy to mount the Legacy Film Festival on Aging ! , so that we can find the very best films that portray the full range of later life – in all its complexities, challenges and richness. Come see for yourself and join us for our 8th Annual Legacy film Festival on Aging.
