FRANKFORT — The Frankfort Film Festival will once again bring award-winning foreign and domestic films to downtown Frankfort for four days of cinema.

The festival takes place from Oct. 19 to 22, with films being played throughout the day at the Garden Theater in downtown Frankfort.

This year, 19 films have been selected, ranging from comedy, romance and drama to documentaries and short films. Many of the films were nominated for or won awards at a number of film festivals, including the Sundance, Cannes and even the Traverse City Film Festival.

During the festival, there will also will be question and answer sessions with filmmakers.
