Purpose and Goals

The purpose of adirondackfilmsociety.org is to convey the essence of the organization’s mission while representing the AFS in top-notch digital form on every page and in every aspect of the website. Film is a visual medium, but at their best movies can also be a form of literature.

This website aims to present some of the best content related to the Film Society, along with images that—like the written text found here—depict the breadth and depth of AFS programming. These include:

  • The annual multi-day Lake Placid Film Forum and the mostly monthly Adirondack Film Society Screening Series, which are educational in nature while also providing a service to the community by bringing films to the North Country that one typically cannot see in the local multiplex; and
  • Such interactive programs as Sleepless in Lake Placid and North Country Shorts, which offer participants opportunities to expand their filmmaking skills while also celebrating the art of film.
