The Frozen River Film Festival was deemed successful by a member of the planning committee.
Kathy Florin said the festival was successful because it brought “the community to engage with one another, learn from one another, and inspire to physically manifest the reality they hold in their ideals.”
There were more people in attendance this year, said Florin, with around 4,000 seats filled, compared to the 3,000 last year.
Films that were the most successful won awards. The film “Wasteland” won the Jury Award and “A Good Day To Die” won the People’s Choice Award.
For Florin, “Wasteland” was her favorite. The film was well done and emotionally touching, keeping audience members engaged and intrigued, said Florin. It was also artsy and creative, a wonderful story, she said.
