Auburn Adventure Film Festival

January 19

See pricing mentioned in each event description.

Check out this inaugural film festival! Auburn’s Adventure Film Festival centers around adventure-based themes and pairs each grouping of films with local, hands-on adventures for the audience to experience. Themes include ski, surf, bike, mountain, culinary, ice, skate, family and child play adventures.

FAMILY ADVENTURE – 10am

In the spirit of old-school board games, we promise a program fit for ages 8 to 88. This collection of shorts — live-action, animation and documentaries — is fun for the whole family, even if sometimes at the grown-ups’ expense. You’ll see stories of aspiring astronauts, perspiring snowballers, inspiring nomads and retiring homebodies, plus a girl who dives deep and kids who commune with nature, an insatiable chameleon, lemurs in love and one exotic animal that will simply stun you. Further proof that the very best entertainment is… child’s play.

Admission: $10 or get a Film Festival Pass for $75 which gets you access to all films. All sales are final.  There are no refunds, no exchanges possible.

SURF ADVENTURE – 1 PM

For those who love the surf, joy comes in waves. Watching these films, it becomes clear why. Life’s a beach for these women and men: a genre-defying photographer who sees waters in a new light, an artist who paints what he sees every day, another who captures her therapeutic visions on canvas, New Yorkers who catch winter waves and a celebrated clique of pros who risk their limbs, lives and livelihoods in pursuit of the perfect break.

Admission: $10 or get a Film Festival Pass for $75 which gets you access to all films. All sales are final.  There are no refunds, no exchanges possible.

An additional ticket is needed for this adventure. Cost: $8 per adult 18 years; $5 for 17 years and under.
