Lead by acclaimed film writer and director, Warren Etheredge, and hosted by the City of Auburn Tourism Division, the first annual Auburn Adventure Film Festival will debut January 18-20, 2019.
A Unique Approach: Film and Adventure
Building on the city’s ongoing promotion of Auburn as a place to “Chose Your Own Adventure,” the festival offers a unique structure that allows the audience to fully engage in the topic of their choice.
“We are creating something new with the Auburn Adventure Film Festival. More than a collection of exciting movies, the AAFF promises a unique experience for anyone who attends and opts to… experience the movies,” said Warren, who is leading the event as Festival Director.
Film packages will be complemented by a thematically-related adventure for the audience – everything from a game of grown-up tag with “professionals,” to ice skating in the heart of the city, sampling international street food and exclusive tours of the mountaineering exhibit at the White River Valley Museum.
“We want folks to make memories in addition to seeing movies. No festival has ever undertaken such an adventure, yet this seems perfectly in the spirit of Auburn, a city where fun of all sorts is within walking distance and new experiences create richer lives,” said Warren.
Films screenings will take place at the Auburn Avenue Theater in downtown Auburn.
