The Festival So Far

We’re halfway through the festival already. Can you believe it? Wednesday, we kicked off the festival with Ron Chapman’s documentary THE POET OF HAVANA, followed by a Q&A w/ the director as well as Carlos Varela and Jackson Brown. The whole event ended with a moving performance by Carlos Varela and his band.

Thursday saw the arrival of many of our filmmakers. They came, they saw, they signed our poster, and we photographed it all!

And though THE POET OF HAVANA kicked off the event, yesterday Woodstock Film Festival screened the US Premiere of our Opening Night Film REMEMBER (Starring Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau). Meira Blaustein was there to introduce the film along with director Atom Egoyan, who had a Q&A after the film. If you’re following Woodstock Film Festival on Twitter or Periscope, you might have seen it pop up in your notifications.

Last night, food and fun times were had as filmmakers mingled and sang karaoke. We welcomed everyone to the Festival with a party at New World Home Cooking! 

But wait, there’s more! Today, we have even more screenings and Q&A’s happening all over the catskill area all the way until Sunday. Here’s a brief look at today’s screenings.
