SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The 10th annual Syracuse International Film Festival runs from Wednesday through Sunday. The premiere event is hosted at four different venues over the next few days.
In addition to watching films, festival goers can attend filmmaking seminars, receptions, and meet and greet sessions.
The Landmark Theater, Palace Theater, Syracuse University, and LeMoyne College are all participating in the event. The festival kicks off Wednesday with a reception featuring legendary Italian poster artist, Silvano Campeggi.
Other highlights of the festival include a visit from comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, and a showing of "Adult World". The comedy was filmed in Syracuse.
"Give people in Syracuse the opportunity to see the film that was shot here a couple of years ago, it's very funny, it's very fresh, I think people will find it unusual comedy and very heartwarming," said Owen Shapiro, Syracuse Film Festival Artistic Director.
A full festival pass can be purchased for $100. The ticket includes three receptions, and admission to all screenings and events. Individual event tickets are also available for purchase.
Thousands of people are expected to attend the event, and provide a boost to the local economy.
