Cinefest 2002!

It is with deep sorrow that I bring you the sad news that our beloved friend and founder of Cinefest, Phil Serling, passed away on January 6th after sustaining injuries received in an automobile accident.

As many of you know Phil was responsible for running the entire Cinefest event every year, and it's hard to imagine Cinefest taking place without him. Cinefest 22 will still take place this March, as most of the films have already been scheduled and reserved.

For those wishing to attend this year's Cinefest, please make out your checks to Cinefest, and send them along with your registration forms (below) to:

215 Dawley Road
Fayetteville, NY 13066-2546
