In January of 2016 we learned that a film called 'As You Are' that was shot right here in the Capital Region by writer/director and Albany Free School Alumni, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte was going to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
The film actually did really well at the festival earning the special jury prize and was nominated for the grand jury prize. Originally we thought we were going to have to wait for it to be released digitally to see it. However, you are going to be able to see it on the BIG screen soon! The film will be having it's Capital Region premiere at the Spectrum in Albany on Friday, March 3rd.
