Film Festival in a Box

The Hippodrome is proud to present the 5th Annual Adirondack Film Festival in partnership with In The Box Entertainment.

Film festivals are more than just great movies – they’re incredible experiences. While we may not be able to bring you to the festival, that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the festival to you. In addition to more than 100 short and feature-length films to choose from, you’ll also receive everything you need to recreate the exciting atmosphere that has become synonymous with AFF. 
 
Your box comes with items like your festival lanyard, killer AFF swag, 3D glasses (you may just need them), and even a rope to cordon off your room from those pesky housemates who don’t meet your VIP status. We’ll provide you with some of the best new films on the planet – along with all the popcorn you’ll need to get through the weekend – and so much more!

  • Two ways to watch: films will be screened in our standard festival schedule, which means they’re shown at specific times.  Filmgoers will be given a full schedule for Thursday-Saturday and must recreate the experience of choosing which films to see and when.  However those wanting to watch whatever they want, when they want it, will be able to binge everything “on demand” on Sunday.
  • Live Voting and Awards Ceremony: an awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, October 18.  Audiences will get to vote on their favorites.
  • Feature Films:  Lots of great ones that you won’t want to miss, announced in September!
  • Filmmaker Intros: Filmmakers will record a brief introduction to their films so you still get the opportunity to meet them!
  • Shorts Blocks: Festival blocks will be created for the short films, as in previous years, by theme (e.g. Laugh Therapy, Sweet & Sour, A Shot in the Dark, Tasting Menu, etc.)  But this year some blocks will be combined with box items to enhance the experience.
