“The Crandell Theatre in Chatham, NY, is the palatial setting for a thriving film festival.”
—Wall Street Journal


FilmColumbia 2022, October 21 – October 30,  is Columbia County’s premier annual cultural event. Once the Crandell Theatre’s “little local festival that could,” FilmColumbia is now an acclaimed, nationally recognized film event.
