LAKE PLACID - On Friday, the eve of a local sceening of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival's touring version, film director Ben Stechshulte will kick things off by presenting his new Four Seasons edition of local Adirondack film "Small Farm Rising" at the High Peaks Adventure Guide House.
Afterward, Stechshulte will lead a question-and-answer panel discussion with local farmers from the film.
Then Saturday is the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, presented by the Placid Lake Foundation, at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.
