ALBANY, N.Y. (Mar. 20, 2012) --- TheKnickerbocker Film Festival is proud to announceThe Linda, WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio (339 Central Avenue, Albany), will host the encore festival screening this Thursday, Mar. 22 at 6:30 p.m.
“I cannot express our gratitude for WAMC and they’re coming in as our knight in shining armor; at the last minute, when things seems hopeless, they’ve really saved the day for us and I will be eternally in their debt,” said Kat Broadus, co-chair of the festival’s awards committee.
“When we heard that the festival was in need of a location at the last minute, we were happy to step up,” said Graeme McKenna, general manager of The Linda.
“Film is a big part of our programming not just as an exhibitor but as a staunch supporter of our local film community as well. The Knickerbocker Film Festival is exactly the kind of programming we should all want to see grow and develop,” McKenna continued.
“I applaud WAMC for their dedication to community events, the performing arts, and presenting quality productions. I thank Graeme McKenna and his staff for stepping up to the plate and ensuring filmmakers get their productions screened at a spectacular venue,” said Rich Fazio, co-founder of the Knickerbocker Film Festival.
The festival, which includes eight short films from not only across the world but from here in the Capital Region, is now in its third year. Admission for the screening at the Linda will be $10. Tickets are available online at knickfilmfest.com and at the screening at the Linda’s box office.
