FILM CENTER CAPITAL CAMPAIGN NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

Since purchasing THE FILM CENTER (formerly Heckeroth Plumbing) in 2011, the Woodstock Film Festival and Hudson Valley Film Commission have been transforming the 3-story, 4-car garage space into permanent office space that has been invaluable to both organizations, and we hope, the community as well.

It took 15 years and the support of many to make this dream a reality.

As we continue to renovate with the utmost care and frugality, we ask you to consider GIVING any amount to help us continue our efforts.

The Film Center

Year-round, the FILM CENTER hosts filmmakers and serves as a hub for special film festival and film commission events.

"For 16 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 enhances the Hudson Valley Film Commission’s ability to bring jobs, educational opportunities and DIRECT REVENUE that results from local film, video and media production.

In order to compete with other states, regions and countries, the film commission provides services for free, so it relies on grants, and end of year giving to offset its office costs including much needed renovations. Any help is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
