The Knickerbocker Film Festival Web Site

2013 Knickerbocker Film Festival.
Updates from the Knickerbocker Film Festival

The selections have been announced. Here is your 2013 lineup.

The Knickerbocker Film Festival (KFF) was concieved by Joseph A. Alindato, the then-Chief Media Officer of BASKnickerbocker Inc., in early 2009. Having access to the Madison Theater and a launchpad of LarkFEST 2009, Alindato along with Joseph M. Bonilla Jr. and Richard A. Fazio, led the charge of bringing a film festival to the Pine Hills neighborhood of Albany.

The festival ran from February 26th through March 4, 2010 - screening seven films selected out of over thirty-five submitted from mainly the Capital Region, but from also as far as North Carolina. At the end of the week-long festival, the Knickerbocker Film Awards + Party (featuring the acclaimed MIRK) packed Elda's on Lark.

It only made sense to continue the festival - but to bring a larger scope of "bringing the Capital City to life." In 2011, the festival grew to two venues: the venerable Spectrum 8 theaters and the Madison Theater - with the awards show taking place at Pearl Street Pub.

This year brings back the Spectrum 8, a encore presentation at The Linda, and an awards show at DeJohn's on Lark that ties in the Knickerbocker Ledger's '30 Under 30'.

The Latest News

Mon, Feb 9, 2015 - Area bands celebrate indie music, WEXT

ALBANY -- Holly Taormina shouted into the mic halfway through her 30-minute set, "If you want something done, you got to do it yourself." Perhaps that was the theme of the Indie Fest show Saturday night at the Linda, a fundraiser for WEXT radio and the Columbia Arts Team. Read More

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM's The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More
