Submissions for the 2020 film festival will open IN December 2019

"The Woodstock film festival is a haven for those who love independent and challenging cinema. The spirit of the Namesake of the festival is in the very fiber of the festival itself - freewheeling, experimental, searching and visionary.”—Julie Taymor


Founded in 2000 as a grassroots arts organization driven by the sheer love of film and community, the Woodstock Film Festival has grown into one of the premiere independent film festivals in the US, bringing together thousands of filmmakers and film lovers over the years. We will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Woodstock Film Festival in the fall of 2019. Also marking the 50th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock Festival, as well as the 100th anniversary of Woodstock as America’s oldest colony of the arts.

Films, panels, parties and the Maverick Awards Ceremony during the Woodstock Film Festival generate large, enthusiastic audiences, news headlines, social media exposure, and a gamut of other promotional opportunities for all of our supporters. Our success is linked to your generous support. Here is your chance to be a part of what actor Paul Rudd calls "a great festival... what a film festival should be, which is really independent films and showcasing the work of filmmakers you might not know about.”
