The 15th Annual Woodstock Film Festival ran from October 15-19, 2014. The festival has grown quite a bit since its beginnings. While still centered in the town of Woodstock, NY, there are now film showings and other events in many other nearby towns, including Rhinebeck and Rosendale, effectively making it a regional Hudson Valley film festival.
In addition to showcasing a large number of narrative films, documentaries and shorts, this year’s WFF featured interviews and panels with director Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For a Dream, Black Swan), Courtney Cox, Bruce Greenwood, and Ron Nyswanner.
There are so many film festivals around these days, and one that’s already ten years old is the Woodstock Film Festival, that takes place in the famous upstate New York town every fall. As Indiewire points out, this is a film festival that has become a showcase for some high quality and well received independent films.
This year’s festival will be running from September 21 to 25. Aside from running a variety of feature films, documentaries and short films, the festival also has panel discussions, concerts and other special events. It’s not a long trip from anywhere on the East Coast, and often boasts some innovative and ultimately important films.
