Located in the beautiful Adirondacks of New York, Lake George is a place where people gather to enjoy great food, music, art, nature and culture. These are enjoyed through numerous festivals. This year we are proud to present Lake George's second annual film festival! We chose this town because of its unique atmosphere; During the day you can hike through the woods, walk along the shopping strip, listen to live music and enjoy the many beaches around the lake. There will be chances to meet the film makers from all around the world, to discuss their films through forums. In the evening you will be able to sit back and watch a grand compilation of local/national/international short films and features in our outdoor viewing area.
