Women's Rights National Historical Park continues its annual Winter Film Festival by showing the documentary film The Triangle Fire Friday, March 21, and Saturday, March 22, 2014.

This week's film re-visits the tragedy of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City on March 25, 1911.  The running time for The Triangle Fire is 60 minutes.

Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates and preserves the sites associated with the First Women's Rights Convention, held in 1848 in Seneca Falls. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Ami Ghazala. "The Winter Film Festival is a fun way to learn about our national history," added Superintendent Ghazala.

All Winter Film Festival showings will occur at 12:00 Noon on Fridays and Saturdays at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center, located at 136 Fall Street in Seneca Falls. All film showings are free of charge. The Winter Film Festival films are intended for a general audience. Visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing as film lengths vary.
