Adirondack Film Festival Posted April 30, 2017


Cinema is a language, when you go to a film, in a way it is like having a conversation…


This is the only film festival in the country operated by a prominent professional theatre company – the Adirondack Theatre Festival.  Because AFT spans the gap of theatre and film, it has the ability to offer a unique vantage point for a film festival as it embraces the similarities and differences in storytelling and the process from page to stage to screen.  Sharing its slogan with the Adirondack Theatre Festival – the leading professional theatre in the Capital Region dedicated to new plays – the Adirondack Film Festival is a place where audiences can always expect to see something new..

The Adirondack Film Festival screens over 60 films in one weekend to thousands of viewers annually.  The Festival features panel discussions, a free family series, multiple parties and special events, and a selection of indie and studio feature length and short films all taking place on 5 screens in downtown Glens Falls.  With all locations in walking distance in the middle of a charming city surrounded by restaurants and parks, and shopping, it’s the ideal setting for a major festival.

The film festival is operated by the Adirondack Theatre Festival – a nationally renowned company in its 23rd year of operation dedicated to developing new plays and musicals.  The film festival presents a wide range of genres but one of the unique focuses is on films that have a connection to the theatre community.

Stay at The Bell House Inn, short walk downtown to the theatre and enjoy one of our fine restaurants.
