Women's Rights National Historical Park continues its second annual Winter Film Festival by showing the documentary film Theodore Roosevelt: Roughrider to Rushmore on Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1, 2012.

Theodore Roosevelt: Roughrider to Rushmore highlights the personal and professional achievements of the 26th President of the United States as well as the challenges he faced as he ushered the nation into the twentieth century. The film illustrates how Roosevelt's passion for conservation paved the way for America's National Parks. The running time for Theodore Roosevelt: Roughrider to Rushmore is 50 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 enjoying this film about Theodore Roosevelt," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne. "The Winter Film Festival is a fun way to learn about our national history," added Superintendent Duchesne.

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.
