Adirondack Film Festival has invented a new way to bring the film festival experience into your home with the World’s-First


available Oct. 15-18, 2020.


Producing Artistic Director, Chad Rabinovitz

“Most festivals are going digital at this point, which is imperative, but that leaves the audience missing arguably the best part of the whole festival: the experience. Our Film Festival in a Box delivers you just that.”

Programming Director, Jessica Levandoski

“Box items may accompany any of the shorts, features, or even special events. But part of the fun of the whole thing is not knowing what’s in the box until it’s time for the festival. So we’re going to keep the exact contents a secret!”

Producing Artistic Director, Chad Rabinovitz

“Half the fun of a film festival is circling the schedule blocks and trying to figure out where to go and when. I can’t imagine a festival experience without plotting your plan of attack."


In addition to more than 120 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 way 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!







Our unique At-Home Festival also includes:

  • 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!
  • Special Events:  We’ll be announcing fun add-ons in September!
  • 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.
