Gearing up for its sixth year, the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival brings together moviemakers, entertainment professionals, and audiences for 10 days of cinema, talks, and workshops. More than 90 feature-length and short films flicker across the screens of five local venues, giving audiences the first peek at comedies, dramas, and documentaries from around the world. Past guests have included boxing champ Evander Holyfield and character actor William Fichtner, adding their names to a festival-sponsored walk of fame planned to wind through historic locations in Buffalo. Awards commemorate the festival’s top films, sending auteurs home with crystal trophies to proudly display on mantels or to focus transporter beams designed to steal Cher’s Oscar.
