Made possible in part by Capitalize Albany Corporation’s Amplify Albany Grant Program, hundreds attended the film festival offering seven historic and contemporary zombie films. Funding for the Amplify Albany Grant Program was provided by the City of Albany’s Capital Resource Corporation. The festival drove foot traffic to the Upper Madison business district and presented an opportunity to further connect UAlbany students with the community. Film studies experts hosted post screening discussions on the films. Other event features included live music, vendors and costume contests to name a few. More information is available here.
