The Adirondack Film Festival offers four days of high-quality, professional films in downtown Glens Falls. The selection of films includes something for everyone, including dramas, documentaries, comedies, family films, web series, and shorts. These films convey a wide range of human emotions, with themes that are heavy, hilarious, dark, uplifting, and more. Over 130 films will be screened over the course of one long weekend!
Everyone loves watching a brand new film, and that's what the Adirondack Film Festival offers. Film aficionados can watch flicks at and walk between five separate locations in beautiful downtown Glens Falls - The Charles R. Wood Theater, Crandall Public Library, The Park Theater, and the Queensbury Hotel.
The Adirondack Film Festival hosts a variety of films and activities for both the film-obsessed adult as well as casual families. There will be panel discussions, opening and closing parties, the Adirondack Film School, a virtual reality plank experience, and a free family series.
Below is a sample of headliners from the 2019 festival. Check back soon for details on the 2020 Adirondack Film Festival!
- Badhaai Ho (Congratulations) - " In this hysterical Hindi-language, “New Bollywood” film, a 25-year-old man tries to suppress his embarrassment when his mother announces that she is pregnant."
- Extra Ordinary - " Rose, a mostly sweet & mostly lonely Irish small-town driving instructor, must use her supernatural talents to save the daughter of Martin (also mostly sweet & lonely) from a washed-up rock star who is using her in a Satanic pact to reignite his fame."
- Greener Grass - "In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (Jocelyn DeBoer) and Lisa (Dawn Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life–starting with her newborn daughter."
- Love Vincent: The Impossible Dream - " A 60 minute documentary detailing the journey it took two passionate filmmakers to achieve their impossible dream, creating the world’s first fully painted feature film."
- Pretenders - "In this film shot entirely in Albany, life imitates deadly arts as a French New Wave obsessed film student, Terry, finds his muse in mysterious and beguiling actress, Catherine. Both Terry and his best friend, Phil, fall under the spell of this beautiful woman. But they soon realize that the more time they spend with her, the more enigmatic she becomes. After years of sex, betrayal, and collateral damage, the three end up in a dangerous situation that leaves one of them fighting for his life."
- The Peanut Butter Falcon - "A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally."
- Jojo Rabbit - "Jojo is a lonely German boy who discovers that his single mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend — Adolf Hitler — Jojo must confront his blind nationalism as World War II continues to rage on."
