"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, The Lion King, Frida, Across the Universe (2018)

"It's a great festival... It's what a film festival should be, which is really independent films showcasing the work of filmmakers you might not know about… I love that, and Woodstock is a town that goes hand in hand with that. I can't think of another place that seems better suited to have an independent film festival than Woodstock." -Paul Rudd

"The Woodstock Film festival is among the finest of a dying breed: a festival that isn't trying to sell you anything, but simply and beautifully celebrating the art & craft of filmmaking." -Ethan Hawke

"Our screening of Cold November at your festival was one of the most magical screenings for any film that I've ever had. There really is no other way to describe it other than magical. I cried in new places at my own movie that I have seen over 100 times. Thank you." -Karl Jacobs, Cold November (2017)
