FilmColumbia is an international festival in the New York State's Hudson Valley that shows yet-to-be-released independent and foreign films the third week of October every year. Every once in awhile we throw a studio film or two for those of our patrons who just can't do without their fix.
We are now in our 14th year. The films are shown in a community owned and operated 1920's single screen theater that is DCI compatible. Our theater, the Crandell, is located in the town of Chatham, two hours up the Hudson from New York City, near Albany, the state capital, and the Berkshires in Massachusetts. Chatham is a picturesque small town, especially at that time of year when the leaves turn, and the festival draws on all three of those regions.
Many of the films we show come with pedigrees from the bigger, glitzier festivals that precede us, like Berlin, Cannes, Telluride, Toronto, and New York, and go on to be nominated and/or win Oscars and other awards.
Our films are programmed by festival executive director Peter Biskind (a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, past executive editor of Premiere Magazine, and film historian), former senior curator for film and media at MoMA, Laurence Kardish, and festival director Calliope Nicholas.
