This year’s Borrego Film Festival was a great success. The nearly full houses for each screening showed the huge interest in the community-at large appetite for films and good stories. Not every film was everyone’s cup of tea, but each film did provide a story that gave individual viewers lots to think about.

The highlight of the event was the visit by Jean Landis, WASP Pilot featured in the film, “She Wore Silver Wings,” which talked about her life and work flying P51 fighter aircraft during World War II, ferrying them to points across the U.S. where the military would then ship them to the various war fronts. The film was voted the People’s Choice Award for the Festival. We will be back on Martin Luther King Holidays in January, 2017.
