4 Updates/Announcements With Glens Falls Events to Know
Our newsy updates this week revolve around events…
ATF Plans Hybrid Event for Adirondack Film Festival
One aspect of the pandemic that likely isn’t going to go away any time soon is virtual events. Not all events will work virtually, but if any do, a film festival is one of them! The Adirondack Theatre Festival, who runs the Adirondack Film Festival, has announced a hybrid event for this year, with in-person and virtual film screenings – and you don’t have to just pick one or the other.
The festival takes place October 14 to 17, and there are four ticket options: All-Access Household (in-person and virtual), All-Access Individual (in-person and virtual), In-Person Pass, and Individual or Household Virtual Pass. All options offer the chance to vote.
“If you’ve already seen everything on Netflix and you’re hungry for fresh content, you’ll find it here,” ATF Producing Artistic Director Miriam Weisfeld said in a statement.
The full schedule is still to be released, but organizers have revealed that the event will include over 70 films, one of which will screen at the Chelsea Film Festival in New York City right after AFF.
Special Flash Sale Tomorrow for Thunder Tickets
The Adirondack Thunder’s home opener is set for October 23 at the Cool Insuring Arena. The local hockey team is offering $10 tickets during a flash sale that starts tomorrow, October 1, at 10am. They’ll be available for select seats through October 2 at 10am, or while supplies last. Tickets will be available for purchase on their website: https://www.echlthunder.com/
