Hudson Film Festival 2022

With modest beginnings, and a local passion for art film, the Hudson Film Festival is now screening world-wide. It’s now the second biggest small Canadian film festival. 

The only live screen is still at the Hudson Village Theatre, a restored historic train station built in 1890. As the town’s cultural art center, it’s the perfect venue for both theatre and film. 

Over a century of stories have walked upon the original floors setting the perfect mood to watch a good movie.
