The Great Lakes Christian Film Festival is the LARGEST faith-based film festival in New York State! This year, we are celebrating our seventh festival in East Aurora, New York (20 miles southeast of Buffalo), the gateway to the Great Lakes. East Aurora is a charming America village… from the famous Vidler’s 5&10, to the historic marquee, to the original brick on Main St., we have a lot to offer. There are a number of restaurants and historic sites like the headquarters of Fisher Price, the house of Millard Fillmore (the 13th US President), and of course, the Roycroft Campus.
