SPOTLIGHT and a BACON BROTHER grace the big screen!
The gala event at the Lake Champlain International Film Festival will feature a variety of short films tonight, including the music video and behind-the-scenes story for Michael Bacon's summer song "It's an Adirondack Thing."
Viewers will hear the song, see the humorous video shot in August on Blue Mountain Lake, and learn about the inspiration behind both the song and the video.
This marks the first time a story produced for Paul Larson's Spotlight segments will grace the big screen. Larson produced, directed and wrote the piece, which was shot and edited by Daniel McCullum.
This is the third year film lovers are heading to the Lake Champlain International Film Festival for five days of motion pictures from Nepal, Spain, Iran, Canada, the United States and more. Works of comedy, drama, horror and documentary, panel discussions, and the chance to meet visiting filmmakers are drawing people to the yearly celebration of cinema.
For the third year, Larson will appear on stage at the festival to answer questions about his work.
GALA EVENT: Doors open at 6pm at the Strand Center Theatre in Plattsburgh. "Films from around the world and close to home" begin at 7pm.
