Past Festivals

For 20 years, the Lake Placid Film Festival has built an enduring reputation through a wonderful selection of international films, enlightened discussions and opportunities for filmmakers and film lovers to connect in the cachet of Lake Placid, a mountain resort town and Olympic Village set in the natural splendor of the Adirondack Mountains.

Throughout the years, the LPFF has featured and hosted academy award winning directors such as Guillermo Del Toro, John Sayles, Milos Forman, Norman Jewison and Martin Scorsese. Actors including Debra Winger, Kyra Sedgwick, Jon Favreau, Matthew Modine, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cliff Robertson, Peter Riegert, Steve Buscemi, Tony Shalhoub, Patricia Clarkson, Campbell Scott and Willem Dafoe...to name a select few.

Over its 20 plus years, the Festivals have consistently delivered a combination of feature length, documentary, short and student films and our annual event includes conversations, panels, seminars, filmmakers, producers, directors, actors, screenwriters and special events.
