For its 15th annual year, The Woodstock Film Festival will bring big names to Upstate New York’s Hudson Valley region.
The narrative film portion of the festival includes some of the features not screened in general competition. One highlight will be former Indiewire Project of the Day, “Amira and Sam,” directed by Sean Mullin. The documentary category includes Mexican visual environmentalist spectacular “Angel Azul” (dir. Marcelina Cravat), Israeli political doc “East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem” directed by Erez Miller and Henrique Cymerman and Debra Granik’s “Stray Dog.”
Woodstock will also offer an array of special events — from the kick-off screening of “East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem,” to special screenings of “Creep” (dir. Patrick Brice, featuring Mark Duplass)to “Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles” (directed by Chuck Workman). Special awards will be presented to Mark Duplass and Darren Aronofsky, presented by Jennifer Connelly.
