Our 2020 Update

As most film festivals have done this year, The Adirondack Film Society has made the decision to cancel the in-person Lake Placid Film Festival for 2020. But “The show must go on” is in the fabric of who we are, so for the 2020 festival we are continuing our short films competition and starting a new program, Featured Filmmakers Series to highlight some of our 2019 filmmakers during a moderated discussion with the filmmaker following a screening of their films. We’ll see you back here October 21-24, 2021!


Featured Filmmakers Series

Short films. Deep Conversations. No charge. You miss movies. We miss you. Problem solved: every Wednesday from September 2nd-October 28 we will stream a short film showcased at the 2019 Festival, and follow with a live, moderated discussion with the filmmaker. Register in advance and we’ll send you the log-on info ahead of time. You bring the popcorn!
