From a man’s inadvertent journey back in time to the excruciating path of an alcoholic’s recovery, Lockport residents can witness a bevy of human emotions and interactions on screen during the Midwest Waterways Short Film Festival.

Organized by the City’s Summer Art Series Committee at the Roxy Theater July 11-Oct. 5, this festival is providing independent filmmakers with an opportunity to show their work in a professional setting, while receiving feedback from peers and members of the audience.
