ASTORIA — The Astoria International Film Festival presents “Hidden Figures” at the Liberty Theatre, 2 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 20. Tickets are $10 at the door.

One of the top-rated films of 2016, the film tells the untold story of the black women who worked at NASA in the 1960s. Based on the nonfiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly, this screening is in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and a tribute to the African American women who helped build America’s space program.

A discussion will follow the screening.

The theater is at 1203 Commercial St., Astoria. For more information, visit libertyastoria.org.
