Adirondack Film Festival returns for seventh year

GLENS FALLS, NY (NEWS10) – Adirondack Theater Festival (ATF) is hosting the Adirondack Film Festival for the seventh year. The event will again use a hybrid model allowing the public to participate online, in person or both.

Fellow moviegoers draw your attention to the Adirondack Film Festival which begins October 13 and runs through October 15. The festival begins with the screening of Blondie: Living in Habana, a short documentary about a groundbreaking concert in Cuba by the iconic band Blondie. Frontman Debbie Harry said playing in Cuba was a dream come true for the band given the former Cuban frontman’s ban on Western music. Rob Roth the creator of Blondie: Living in Habana has worked on projects with Grammy winners David Bowie, Lady Gaga and Rihanna and is Blondie’s longtime collaborator. Roth’s work spans both film and theatre.

The festival continues on October 14 and 15 with screenings of features, documentaries, shorts, comedies, thrillers and films from the Adirondack region. David Strathairn (Good night and good luck), Jason Schwartzmann (Rushmore), Lili Taylor (Mystical Pizza), and other notable actors will headline at this year’s festival. ATF Artistic Director and Producer Mariam Weisfeld said, “We are honored by the caliber of artists sharing their work with the film festival this year. In addition to celebrities such as Debbie Harry, David Strathairn, and Jason Schwartzman, we are thrilled to highlight the work of regional Adirondack artists and the film work of theater creators. All that and free popcorn. What a weekend!”
