All who have created Appalachian Trail films of any length or genre are invited to share their work with the organizers of the premier Lake Champlain International Film Fest (LCIFF).

The LCIFF team welcomes all types of film categories, from documentaries and fiction to short and feature length, for their event scheduled for November 15 & 16, 2014.

The Film Festival, presented by the Plattsburgh Renewal Project and The Strand Center for the Arts, will be held at the Strand Theatre, a landmark of cultural and historical importance. Located in the heart of downtown Plattsburgh, the Strand was originally built as a vaudeville theatre in 1924 and is currently on the National Registry of Historic Places.
