The Adirondack Film Festival grew by leaps and bounds in its second year. The festival, which was sponsored by the Adirondack Theatre Festival, sold 757 passes and brought hundreds of people to downtown Glens Falls. A total of 80 films were screened at venues such as the Crandall Public Library, 190 Grille & Cinema, the Charles R. Wood Theater, the Queensbury Hotel and the Hyde Collection. There was even a screening of the hockey film “Miracle’ on the big screen at Cool Insuring Arena.

Festival attendees overwhelmingly said they would return for a third year.

The Glens Falls area is becoming quite a moviemaking community. A film called “Spy Intervention” wrapped up filming at places such as the civic center, Lake George Forum and the Prospect Dinner.

Filmmaker John Gaps III is going to film “Cop Shop” in the city in early 2018.

The Adirondack Film Commission is incorporating as a nonprofit organization so it can continue to attract films to the area. The group hopes to capitalize on the area’s cost of living, which makes lodging, food and parking less expensive.
