Dear Friends,

We did it! We presented our first Virtual and 10th Annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging (LFFOA) over 8 days, from May 24 to May 31, 2021.

We screened more than 30 feature-length and short films from Australia, Sweden, Hungary, Cuba and the U.S., and 460 moviegoers attended online – including you!

When Covid-19 shut down our 2020 plans for a celebratory, live 10th Annual Legacy Film Festival on Aging, all we could do then was learn to Zoom, and research how – and whether – to do a virtual film festival.

By early 2021, despite our vast ignorance we decided to go for it. We chose our digital platform and hired a small staff of technical specialists. All brilliant people. We were lucky.

To our delight, more than 400 of you LFFOA moviegoers joined our maiden voyage into cyberspace. Just as you have done at our past film festivals, you expressed how deeply affected you were by our films. Some of you even told us our films changed your life!

THANK YOU! Your enthusiasm is what keeps us motivated to hold our film festival every year regardless of inconvenient circumstances.
