One film. Each Month. Multiple Showings. The Lake Placid Film Forum… Series
The Adirondack Film Society is pleased to announce The Lake Placid Film Forum Series. Beginning in September, 2014, the Film Forum will screen a series of films at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. The program will feature one film, one weekend each month, with multiple showings.
“We’ve been working on growing our program,” says John Huttlinger, Chairman of the Adirondack Film Society. “Showing films at the LPCA venue is one way the Adirondack Film Society is evolving to bring our audiences the quality programming they’ve come to expect, and to embrace the changing medium of film exhibition.”
The Adirondack Film Society is engaged in plans to have the Film Forum Series hosted by a variety of additional venues. They also will retain traditional programming, such as the Silent Film Festival at the Palace Theatre.
For the Film Forum Series at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, Kathleen Carroll will be presenting feature and documentary films, and where possible, films will be accompanied by a special guest.
LPCA Executive Director James Lemons says “We are thrilled to be partnering with the Adirondack Film Society. Film has always been such a strong component of our programming, and we couldn’t think of a better way to strengthen our film programming that a long-term, extended film series curated by Kathleen. We are confident that this film series will be a major benefit to both organizations and the movie-loving public at large.”
“It’s the Film Forum,” says T J Brearton, who will oversee elements of the program, “But it’s been reshaped…’transmogrified’ …into a monthly event.”
One film will screen over the course of one weekend, with two to five showings per film. Tickets will be $7 at the LPCA box office and may be purchased in advance by calling 518-523-2512. As the films are worked into the program, they will be listed beginning a month prior to screening online, using websites, email newsletters, and social media like Twitter and Facebook.
