Short Doc CARE To Screen at FFF2010
The Flagstaff Film Festival is delighted to welcome a poignant short doc, CARE to the roster of high-quality independent films screening this August 9-16 in Flagstaff, Arizona.

CARE dir. Erica Gronek
Care is the story of one woman's journey to get long term care for her mentally ill and ailing mother. Stuck in the 'sandwich generation' she is both caring for her mom and her young son. She is troubled by her mother's obvious cognitive impairment yet struggles to build a case with the state long term care agency. She finds that there is a gaping hole between care for the body and the mind as well as for the intersection of mental health and aging.

About the Flagstaff Film Festival
We're celebrating our inaugural year this August 9-16 in cool and piney Flagstaff, Arizona. We're celebrating all film genres and spicing things up with several special programs, workshops, live podcasts, and panel discussions.

About Flagstaff
Beautiful and historic Flagstaff Arizona is hosting the first Flagstaff Film Festival, and we could not be happier!  Situated on classic Route 66, Flagstaff is the place to go for history, science, endless nature, and some pretty darn cool indie folks.

About the Venue
A classic town of unprecedented beauty, Flagstaff has a theater that is just as perfect as the Flagstaff weather in August.  The Orpheum Theater, originally constructed in 1911, boasts plentiful seating, a balcony, a full bar, and even a lounge for filmmakers to mingle with one another.
