LGBTQ+ Focus

"For over one-hundred years, Woodstock has been a place of dreams and ideas for art, political philosophy and alternative lifestyles." Elmer Bernstein

Since its inception, the Woodstock Film Festival has always been at the forefront of social, cultural and political issues, and has always been a strong advocate and programmer of LGBTQ+ films and filmmakers, celebrating their work and honoring their accomplishments with an exciting slate of films, concerts and special guests.

The LGBTQ+ Focus is an important aspect at the film festival, starting a conversation regarding gender equality and other related issues, and helping to widen our social dialogue. A few 2018 highlights include Socrates, Shakedown, and Lez Bomb.
