Family Film Festival

The Chautauqua Fun Film Festival is this Saturday, August 7, at 10am at the Pickwick Theater in Syracuse.  Attendance is free.  The Festival consists of video clips shot by Syracuse-area residents of fun family times around the lake or home.  Over fifty clips were submitted by area residents showing dogs having fun in the water, kids doing silly things, bouncing and flipping tubes, fireworks, biking and other family fun times.  The videos were collected and submitted over the last 45-days, orchestrated by Chautauqua-Wawasee, and produced into a fast-paced film by Ryan Snider and Matt Wuthrich, recent Wawasee High School graduates.   Following the viewing, awards will be presented in five categories:  Fun with pets, kids’ fun, biking, tubing and a wildcard category.  The public is invited to this one-time community event 10:00am – 10:30am.  We certainly hope to see everyone there!
