You’d have to have a lot of time on your hands to see all of it, but you should carve out a few hours to catch some of it.
It’s this year’s edition of the Syracuse International Film Festival. And unlike Hancock International Airport, that “I” word carries not a trace of hyperbole. The festival is a chance for film makers from all over the world to see their work projected, and see a real, live audience react to it. Then there are the old American films, like 1920’s “The Last of The Mohicans,” to be run with a new live music score on Wednesday evening- that’s opening night- at the Landmark Theatre. The work was composed by Native American Brent Michael Davids, whose ancestors lived in CNY.
Another honored guest will be Syracuse native Ben Burtt, a master of sound movies as shown by his audio work on Star Wars and Indiana Jones films. You can’t see it all, but take time to enjoy some of it: The Syracuse International Film Festival. Much more information, right here.
