Finger Lakes Film Trail has officially launched — Rochester, Ithaca, and Auburn!

Exploits of Elaine

The Exploits of Elaine (1914)

On Thursday, April 25th, 2019, WSM went on the road to the George Eastman Museum in Rochester to celebrate the Finger Lakes Film Trail, a new collaboration developed by Wharton Studio Museum, in partnership with Eastman Museum, and Case Research Laboratory & Cayuga Museum in Auburn.  This inter-county initiative highlights the historical importance of the Finger Lakes Region in the development of motion pictures.   The FLFT will offer annual programming at each of its three locations — Rochester, Ithaca, and Auburn. Each city played an important role in early filmmaking and has a story to tell.  FLFT’s inaugural event at Eastman Museum featured a screening of four episodes (recently restored by Eastman) from the Wharton Studio’s The Exploits of Elaine with live music by Philip Carli.  WSM is thrilled to be partner in this exciting initiative! More details about FLFT coming soon…
