Screenings of 22 feature films this year include a beautifully restored post-World War I comedy called Fly Low Jack and the Game, a documentary tribute to a long-gone slice-of-life entitled The Automat, the pandemic horror movie Eradication, plus the locally produced Shades Inside the Blueline, complete with an opportunity to speak with filmmaker Michael C. Hansen.
Viewers may also sample a great mix of short films, and many of the producers will be present at the screenings.
Producers, directors, cinematographers and film enthusiasts will conduct seminars and be on hand to answer questions. One highlight this year is the “Cinematographers’ Dialogue.” Panelists will address topics including the visual grammar of films, plus establishing mood and emotion in a scene.
The panel discussion runs from 11:30 – 1:30 pm on Saturday the 22nd.
The Lake Placid Film Festival is an annual event produced by the organization Adirondack Film. The festival runs this year from October 20th until the 23rd.
