"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 explored and celebrated LGBTQ+ voices with an exciting slate of films, concerts and panels. We have also recognized movers and shakers from the LGBTQ+ community like 2007 WFF Honorary Maverick Award Recipient Christine Vachon and 2016 Spirit of Woodstock award winner Ron Nyswaner (PHILADELPHIA). In addition, the Hudson Valley Film Commission has worked closely with local productions including Ira Sachs' Keep the Light On and Transamerica by Duncan Tucker.
