The Woodstock Film Festival has added Paul Green to their team as the new Music Coordinator. Green is best known for his establishment of School of Rock, originally a performance-based after-school music program for kids, is now also a camp, a festival, a documentary film and an All Star Program, and has now expanded into fifty-seven schools across the country and in Mexico.

"His contacts in the music industry will help bring more musical acts to this year's festival and beyond. We're confident that Paul's efforts on behalf of the Woodstock Film Festival will result in more music-related programs for the region," said WFF Co-Founder and Executive Director Meira Blaustein.

Full press release below:

(Woodstock, NY) - August 3, 2011: The Woodstock Film Festival is thrilled to welcome a new Music Coordinator to the team. Music guru and film buff, Paul Green, joins WFF with more than twenty years experience working different roles within the music industry. Green is a teacher, songwriter, musician, entrepreneur and the founder of School of Rock. He was also featured in Woodstock : Now & Then, a documentary directed by Academy Award winner, Barbara Kopple.

"Paul's wealth of knowledge and experience will contribute to the growth of the Woodstock Film Festival," said WFF Co-Founder and Executive Director Meira Blaustein. "His contacts in the music industry will help bring more musical acts to this year's festival and beyond. We're confident that Paul's efforts on behalf of the Woodstock Film Festival will result in more music-related programs for the region."

Paul is most renown for School Of Rock, a performance-based music program for kids, which he founded in 1998. This educational company operates and sponsors franchises for after-school music programs. First established in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, fifty-seven schools are now opened across the country and in Mexico.

Green expanded School Of Rock making it not only an after-school program but also a camp, a festival, a documentary film and an All Star Program, which allows top students to embark on an authentic rock and roll touring experience with travel, hotels, and real rock venues.

"After attending a couple WFF events I was blown away by the caliber of people involved with the festival, I'm honored to be joining Meira, Laurent and the rest of the dedicated team," said Green. "I'm jumping in with both feet as the new WFF Music Coordinator, hoping this year will be the first year of a long term partnership between WFF, my students and myself."

Green recently moved to Woodstock and is currently working with Michael Lang, co-creator of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Festival, on the early phases of building a world renown music college right here in Woodstock.
