Student Film Festival
A celebration of student creativity and talent that gives students a chance to win prizes and have their voices heard in their community.
“Beyond the Peaks” Film festival is a community-based showcase of art made by young filmmakers in the Adirondacks. The festival was created by AdkAction in partnership with Tupper Lake Central School District. The Inaugural Festival took place on May 10, 2019 at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY. Film submissions were accpeted from 50 students representing 7 school districts in the greater Adirondack area.
This event is free and open to the public. Filmmaking is an important artistic discipline that is underrepresented in rural America. We want to create and expand opportunities for young people in the Adirondacks interested in filmmaking or “digital storytelling.” It’s all about giving area youth a platform for creative expression and an opportunity to have their voices heard.
The Department of Transportation Acting Commissioner Paul A. Karas announced a program to reduce the application of road salt around Mirror Lake and Lake George to help mitigate environmental impacts from salt, while still maintaining motorists’ safety.
