The Berkshire International Film Festival is partnering with Dove to present a community screening of the new documentary short "Selfie" at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Triplex Cinema with a brunch hosted by Castle Street Cafe immediately following.

"Selfie" captures the journey of multiple generations of girls and their mothers in the Berkshires as they create a new type of selfie that celebrates their unique beauty.

The film’s director, Cynthia Wade, an Academy Award-winning filmmaker and BIFF Advisory Board member, will be in attendance with some of the women featured in the film.

Also being screened is the Sundance hit "Sepideh" about a young Iranian woman who wants to become an astronaut.

The film and brunch are free and open to the public. RSVP to at by Wednesday, Feb. 19.
