SANBORN, NY (WKBW-TV) — Bob Borgatti launched the Niagara County Community College Film Festival 25 years ago. He says "It started very small as just a video festival."

The festival isn't small anymore. This year there are about 150 entries from just about every corner of the world. And it is now a "Film and Animation Festival."

Bob says that it has been a great way to promote the Digital Media and Animation programs at the college. He is the coordinator of those programs as well as the director of the annual film and animation festival.

The GCCC Film & Animation Festival is on the college campus on May 6 from 11 am-5 pm. There will be 50 films screened as well as workshops, guest speakers, music, food, a trivia contest and much more. $1700 in cash prizes will be handed out to the top winners. It's all FREE!

Bob says last year's event attracted about 300 guests and adds "It's great to see something you started so many years ago on such a small scale has grown to something like this."
