Snowtown Film Festival Coming To Watertown This Winter


Lights, camera, action!

Snowtown USA is adding a film festival to its list of events.

The news was announced Wednesday by the Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce and the city of Watertown Parks and Recreation Department.

The festival committee will be looking for submissions from all over the world, including the north country.

The plan is to screen the films at a location in downtown Watertown.

"The State Office Building is one venue we're looking at. We haven't nailed down any venues. We'd like to keep it downtown," said Terry Brennen, co-chair of the Snowtown Film Festival committee.

The film festival will be held January 30 and 31.

Presentations on silent film accompaniment, movie monster makeup and script writing are in the works and the Jefferson County Historical Society will present an exhibit on the region's old movie houses.
