Community Art Grant supports the
9th annual Ballston Spa
International Film Festival

Ballston Spa Film Festival, Inc. (BSFF) has received a 2016 Community Arts Grant in support of the 9th annual Ballston Spa International Short Film Festival to be held August 5th & 6th.

The $3,925 grant will be used for graphic design of festival materials, costs associated with the audio/visual services needed to run the films, and to help cover costs of promotion/advertising.

By receiving this grant, the BSFF will be able to reach a wider community audience and geographic area, and will help keep the event free to the community.

Saratoga Arts - 2014 BSFF Sponsor Saratoga Arts makes the 9th annual Ballston Spa International Short Film Festival possible with a 2016 Community Arts Grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
