ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The Mosaic World Film Festival shines a spotlight on more than 80 movies September 17-19 at the Nordlof Center, including this year’s feature award winner “All These Sons” directed by Rock Valley College Alum Bing Liu and Joshua Altman.

To mark this occasion, students at Rock Valley College welcomed Peter Hawley, the Director of the Illinois Film Office. Hawley talked with students about the growing film industry here in Illinois.
