2008 Woodstock Film Festival: October 1-5, 2008 in Woodstock, NY

The Woodstock Film Festival celebrates its ninth year with another outstanding collection of nearly 150 “fiercely independent” films, panels, concerts and special events, Wednesday October 1 through Sunday October 5.   The exceptionally diverse program takes place in the arts colony of Woodstock and the neighboring towns of Rhinebeck and Rosendale.

New Film Center planned

The Woodstock Film Festival and Hudson Valley Film Commission, proven economic engines for the Hudson Valley, are on the verge of making a long-time dream a reality. They are launching an Capital Campaign to secure a permanent home and FILM CENTER.

Year-round, the Film Center will host filmmakers, film-related workshops, classes, special events and serve as a hub to continue producing events like the recent sold-out screenings of The Dry Land, which featured Ugly Betty star America Ferrera & Academy Award nominee Melissa Leo who both spoke and mingled with the crowd, and the sold-out screening of the powerful documentar Gasland with guests: director Josh Fox and Congressman Maurice Hinchey.

The Film Center will also greatly increase the film commission's productivity by not only serving as offices for staff, but for productions shooting in the area.

Recent Hudson Valley productions have included Higher Ground, directed by and starring Academy Award nominee and Hudson Valley resident Vera Farmiga and Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding, directed by two-time Academy Award nominated director and 2010 WFF Maverick Award Recipient Bruce Beresford (Tender Mercie, Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy) starring double Academy Award recipient Jane Fonda and another two-time Academy Award nominee, Catherine Keener.

Help meet their goal by sending your capital funding campaign donation to Woodstock Film Festival, PO Box 1406, Woodstock, NY 12498 or dropping it off in person at 86 Mill Hill Road, Woodstock, NY 12498.

The arts colony offers a relaxed, receptive atmosphere, which  filmmakers consistently cite as perfect for the creative interaction necessary for a great film festival!. WFF is a festival for and by filmmakers and was born through a passion for cinema that could only be the brainchild of active filmmakers and dedicated supporters of  ‘fiercely independent’ film.
