About the Lewiston Auburn Film Festival The Lewiston Auburn Film Festival will debut on Saturday, April 2nd, showcasing work from around the world, including Maine-made films – several of them world and festival premieres. The films will be shown in a variety of venues in downtown Lewiston and Auburn.
Headlining the festival will be a special advanced preview of the work-in-progress PAL HOP DAYS. The documentary, created by Lewiston filmmaker Bill Maroldo, examines the popular weekly PAL Hop concerts that took place in the mid-to-late 1960s within the context of a reunion concert that drew thousands of fans in August 2010.
Festival highlights include a “festival within a festival” featuring films from the Los Angeles-based Lady Filmmakers Film Festival, a gala dinner at Fuel, question-and-answer sessions with filmmakers, and an awards ceremony. The full schedule will be announced in early March.
