SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- When in Syracuse, make a movie! The city's history with movie making was the theme of a collaborative fundraiser between the Landmark Theatre and the Syracuse International Film Festival Friday.
The setting was happy hour and along with silent auction items, those who attended had a great chance to see the beautiful interior of the theater and clips of several movies from the past couple decades that were either shot in Syracuse or mentioned Syracuse.
"I think it's a great idea for two arts organizations to collaborate together and really show the community that we're dedicated to bringing new people in to the arts community," said Mary Kate Hartmann, Landmark Theatre Development Director.
"For me, the real strength of the meeting is that this is a great place to see film. This is a great place to make film. This is a great place to show film," said Leo Crandall, Syracuse International Film Festival Director.
This year's Syracuse International Film Festival runs October 11th through the 14th.
