Lewiston Council on the Arts (LCA) and the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival (BNFF) are partnering to present the Lewiston Film Festival on April 1 and 2, 2016 at the beautiful Barton Hill Hotel and Spa, 100 Center Street, Lewiston, NY.

The two-day event will feature independent films juried into this year’s lineup (see list below) that represent a mix of features, documentaries, and shorts in a variety of genres including drama, fantasy, comedy and family.

“We are pleased to partner with BNFF on this, their 10th anniversary,” said Eva Nicklas, Artistic Director LCA. “Most of us will never get to Sundance or Cannes, and this is a chance to discover emerging talent and experience the power of storytelling through independent filmmaking.”
