Join us October 21st – 24th in America’s Olympic Village, for the 2021, 20th Anniversary, Lake Placid Film Festival.

The Lake Placid Film Festival is proud to celebrate the community of film industry amateurs, professionals and just plain movie buffs, with award winning shorts screenings, cutting edge feature length films, educational seminars, mixers, receptions, tributes, directors, producers; and you: all wrapped in the mystical, magical village of Lake Placid, NY. 


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!
