two men

two men in town

OPENING NIGHT FILM
After a troubled youth and 18 years in prison, William Garnett is being released. With the help of an idealistic parole agent and his new-found Islamic faith, Garnett struggles to rebuild his life and overcome the violent impulses which possess him. However, Bill Agati, the Sheriff of the small New Mexico border county where Garnett is released, has other ideas. Convinced that Garnett is unredeemable and is a threat to the security of his county, Agati launches a campaign to return Garnett to prison for life.

Two Men in Town stars Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Harvey Keitel, Brenda Blethyn, Luis Guzman, Dolores Héredia, Ellen Burstyn, Tim Guinee, Reg E. Cathey, and is directed by Rachid Bouchareb (Indigènes (Days of Glory)) and produced by Allen Bain (The Cake Eaters, Room, and Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story), both of whom have shown films at the Woodstock Film Festival in previous years.


The Better Angels

The Better Angels

CLOSING NIGHT FILM
The Better Angels, which takes its name from a line in Abraham Lincoln's first Inaugural Address, tells the story of Lincoln's childhood in the harsh wilderness of Indiana, the hardships that shaped him and the tragedy that marked him forever. Using black and white cinematography to conjure an America where the land was raw, this film sheds new light on the formative years of the future president and the two women who molded him into one of the most revered men in American history.

The film stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), Brit Marling (I Origins, Another Earth), and Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games, American Beauty), and was produced by Academy Award® Nominee Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven, Tree of Life), Nicolas Gonda, Jake DeVito and Charley Beil


sisterhood

CENTERPIECE FILM
Directed by Caryn Waechter,
The Sisterhood of Night is a story of friendship and loyalty set against the backdrop of a modern-day Salem witch trial. Shot on location in Kingston, NY, the film chronicles a group of girls who have slipped out of the world of social media into a mysterious world deep in the woods. 

The Sisterhood of Night stars Georgie Henley, Kara Hayward, Kal Penn, Laura Fraser, Willa Cuthrell, Olivia De Jonge, Jessica Hecht, and Neal Huff.


creep

SPECIAL SCREENINGS
Creep, directed by Patrick Brice, is a two-man story set in a remote mountain cabin in the woods. Joseph, expecting to die soon of an unstated illness, hires Aaron through an ad on Craigslist to document the end of his life as a legacy to his unborn son. Creep will be presented by actor, co-writer and co-producer Mark Duplass, who will lead a discussion following the screening.

Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles, directed by Chuck Workman, looks at the remarkable genius of Orson Welles on the eve of his centenary - the enigma of his career as a Hollywood star, a Hollywood director, and a crucially important independent filmmaker. Director Workman will be on hand for Q&A following the screening.

The Fly Room, directed by Alexis Gambis, is a wondrous story that captures the mysterious inner world of a child's imagination at the brink of scientific discovery. The film will be introduced by Paul Hoffman, President and CEO of Liberty Science Center and the Creative Director of Beyond Rubik's Cube.


antarctica

just before i go

Antarctica 3D: On the Edge, directed by Jon Bowermaster, witnesses the National Geographic explorer and his adventurous team travel along the frozen coastline by sea kayak, ice-worthy sailboat, and on foot to gain an up-close look and attempt to better understand just how the seventh continent is changing. Staying for a Q&A following the screening, filmmaker and WFF guest Jon Bowermaster will also be featured on the "Impact Filmmaking" panel.

Just Before I Go, directed by Courteney Cox, follows Ted as he decides to end his mediocre life. Before doing so, he returns to his hometown to revisit the demons of his past: the cruel school teacher; the relentless bully; the girl who got away. Courteney Cox will take part in a Q&A following the screening, as well as being featured on the "Women in the Director's Chair" panel to discuss her feature-length directorial debut.

The Hudson Valley and Catskills have been a hotbed of creative energy and artistic vibrancy for over a century. In addition to attracting production talent from all over the world, many established and emerging filmmakers have now made the Hudson Valley their home. The 2014 WFF schedule has programmed several locally produced films including the feature films
I Believe in Unicorns, Little White Lie, Late Phases, and The Sisterhood of Night. Locally produced short films include The Lipstick Stain, The Suffering Kind, One Armed Man and the entire Hudson Valley Docs program.

Spotlight on Women

SPOTLIGHT ON WOMEN IN FILM
The Woodstock Film Festival's Spotlight on Women in Film & Media initiative highlights exciting new works by some of today's most talented, established and up-and-coming female directors. The aim is to feature the works of female directors, while empowering both teens and women who want to work in film & and media to follow their dreams and carve their path in an industry that is still dominated by men. The initiative includes a panel featuring women in the director’s chair and explores relevant issues. In addition, the Tangerine Entertainment Award will be presented for Best Female Director.


worldcinema WORLD CINEMA: Films from around the globe.
As technology makes our world seem smaller and increasingly accessible, we are given the rare opportunity to expand our global consciousness. Film remains one of the highest forms for such expression, offering audiences the scenery, sounds and personalities of faraway places. WFF is proud to present the World Cinema program to further our commitment to sharing experiences across continents. 2014 highlights include
A Small Section of the World, Antarctica 3D: On the Edge, Arwad, The Man Who Saved the World, Patrick’s Day, Two Raging Grannies, and Red Lines.

YOUTH INITIATIVE: Engaging and encouraging youth participation in film.
Since its inception as an educational not-for-profit arts organization, the Woodstock Film Festival has been committed to youth and education as a means to positive development, conflict resolution and growth opportunity. WFF proudly presents its Teen Film Program each year as an event that encourages young filmmakers and showcases some of the best young talent from the local region and across the world.
