I am proud to present in my post; information about theSaratoga Springs International Film Festival, which is being held on September 17, 2016; and there are high hopes for its success.
Saratoga Springs N.Y. is well known for its horse track, which began in 1863. This makes the track the third oldest racetrack in the United States. Saratoga Springs is also known for its cultural and arts attractions, which it is the hub for the Capitol and Upstate Region in New York. Over the years, many people have discussed why there has not been an international film festival in Saratoga Springs before.;
Having an International Film Festival in Saratoga Springs is a way to promote the area, support the independent film industry, particularly those of local films. For full disclosure, I have been asked to be one of the judges at this event.
This new film festival is the brain child of many people; most notably is the director of the event, Caitlin Stedman. After leaving Vancouver Film School in 2012, Ms. Stedman has written and directed numerous short films, documentaries and promotional videos in Vancouver, BC, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Fort Edward, Whitehall, Salem, Lake George, Saratoga Springs, and Hudson Falls, NY. Ms. Stedman also owns Snarky Aardvark Films, LLC., which is a production company based in Queensbury, NY.
To show more disclosure, Ms. Stedman has directed me in several short movies. These movies include Home,and Lemonaid.
The film festival will have numerous categories such as Short Films (under 45 mins), Feature Films (over 45 min) and Student Films (2-120 mins long). If you have directed a movie, or perhaps know someone who has, check out their website for more information.
This is the first year of the film festival, and it is currently looking for sponsorships. This is a wonderful opportunity to promote great independent film at the same time having your business or organization be recognized for its contribution. For more information, please visit their sponsor’s page. You may also visit the Saratoga Springs International Film Festival if you are interested in participating as exhibitors and performance artists.
If you are located in the area, and want to volunteer, please contact the Saratoga International Film Festival at their website. This is a wonderful chance for you to become part of a great new tradition in Saratoga Springs, NY.
I am very excited about this event, and I hope that you will have the opportunity to the Saratoga Springs International Film Festival on September 17, 2016. This festival will become a major event in the area, and will soon be recognized as a premier film event in the world, and you do not want to miss the very first one.
