Woodstock Film Festival releases new line-up

Just like other film festivals which are slowly shifting back to physical screenings, the new edition of the Woodstock Film Festival will start from September 29 and will feature screenings in Hudson Valley communities near New York. Structured in a hybrid manner, digital screenings will also be available to individuals who do not want to attend the festival in person.

In addition to the film screenings, Woodstock has also arranged for comedy sets, expert panels and concerts. A music documentary titled Fanny: The Right to Rock is set to kickstart the festival, with other works by filmmakers like Todd Haynes, Céline Sciamma and Joachim Trier among others. There will be 43 feature films in total, with six national premieres on the cards.

“In thinking of the scope of this year’s lineup, I see a clear reflection of the challenging world of the past year, where resilience has been a requirement for survival and a unifying force for people pulling together,” said Meira Blaustein, the festival’s executive director, while discussing what the film festival has in store for audiences this year.

Adding, “Filmmakers dive deeply into the myriad ways people face the unknowns and the unknowables, opening a window into new and uncharted discoveries. We are excited to be showing the work of these talented and dedicated filmmakers at this year’s festival.”

Take a look at the full list of the brand new line-up for this year’s edition of the Woodstock Film Festival below.
