CAPITAL CAMPAIGN FOR FILM CENTER NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

To donate to the general fund, click here

Since January 2011, the Woodstock FIlm Festival and Hudson Valley Film Commission have been transforming the FILM CENTER at 13 Rock City Road.  This permanent office space has been invaluable in making the festival more easily accessible.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution.
See details below.

It took eleven years and the support of many to make this dream a reality. With use of the building now we regularly hold workshops, meetings and casting calls as well as having a box office that is open year-round for merchandise.

Now, we must turn our efforts to paying our mortgage and making the necessary renovations including:

- Replacement of roof shingles on building and garage
- Installation of attic insulation (to keep heat in)
- Replacement of 15 windows with energy efficient units
- New gutters to replace broken, torn units
- Finish upstairs porch into four season room

Year-round, the FILM CENTER will host filmmakers, film-related workshops, classes, special events and serve as a hub for special film festival and film commission events.

"For 12 years, the Woodstock Film Festival has been bringing renowned filmmakers, actors, directors, behind-the-scenes industry members and international press to the Hudson Valley, but we have been hampered by not having our own facility," said Meira Blaustein, WFF Executive Director. "We spend an enormous amount of time, energy, and a ton of money scrambling to find and renovate space each year to fulfill our needs, so the new Film Center offers us the opportunity to consolidate and grow to continue providing extraordinary programming and economic benefit to the region."

The Film Center will also greatly increase HVFC productivity by not only serving as offices for staff, but for productions shooting in the area and a central location for casting calls.

"The Film Center will enhance our ability to continue creating, assisting and promoting sustainable, clean, economic development by bringing jobs, educational opportunities and revenue to the community via film, video and media production," remarked Hudson Valley Film Commission director Laurent Rejto. "We provide those services for free and with state and county grants falling by more than forty percent, financial support is critical to our continued success."

About the Hudson Valley Film Commission:
The Hudson Valley Film Commission (HVFC) , is a conduit for preproduction, production, and postproduction for filmmaking in the Hudson Valley/Catskill region. Support is provided throughout the year to studio features, independent features, print, new media, short films, student projects, and TV ads. The commission offers technical, location, and talent guidance, referrals, networking opportunities, email blasts, and promotion through press opportunities including the monthly e-newsletter, which is sent to 13,000 recipients. The HVFC has also referred several local projects to production companies and financial channels. In order to make information fully accessible, a free online production directory for local film professionals is provided and maintained online.

2013 was a great year for film production in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. The Hudson Valley Film Commission (HVFC) promoted sustainable economic development by attracting and supporting over 120 projects, including feature narratives, documentaries, TV shows, student shorts, ads, photo shoots, music videos and other media production. The economic impact resulted in millions of dollars, hundreds of part time jobs, educational opportunities and additional revenues that resulted from travel to the area by film crews, post-production work, marketing and screening exhibitions. Work took place in the six counties represented by HVFC, including Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Greene, Orange and Ulster.

A record five films that shot in the Hudson Valley were selected to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival: The Better Angels, Cold in July, Hits, i Origins and Jamie Marks is Dead.

"We couldn't have had a more pleasant experience. The HVFC was helpful beyond belief." Trace Henderson, Producer of the Feature Film JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD, one of five Hudson Valley Films accepted to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

" It was such a pleasure to film in the Hudson Valley. It was so beautiful and people were so nice and helpful and supportive of production. The Hudson Valley Film Commission helped greatly with getting us in touch with locations and location owners, as well as posting for acting roles and other production needs. We had a great experience working with them.” Chloe Dumont, Producer of the Feature Film SIMIAN.
