For women, by women – this film festival is a must. And this year, it features two films that were made by local women. One called “Bloom,” which is—you guessed it—set during the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival, is about a girl coming of age during the Queen’s Coronation. The second, which is called “Finding Me,” was created by three SU students, with the theme of discovering your inner strength as a woman.

The audience experience is intimate and personal. Truly, there are moments when you will believe it is 1949 and Hank is singing just for you. “Lovesick Blues” has satisfied long-time fans of Hank Williams Sr. and has certainly made new fans with each performance. Robbie Limon’s physical appearance and vocal interpretations are simply uncanny. One reviewer has noted, “This is as close anyone will ever get to seeing and hearing Hank again.”
