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. This fall the festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary. 2019 also marks 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.”

THE FILM CENTER has been invaluable in making the film festival and the film commission more easily accessible to the community. In addition to providing administrative offices and a souvenir / box office storefront, we now regularly hold meetings, workshops, casting calls, and more to advance film exhibition and production in the region.

The property was purchased in January 2011. The site was originally home to Heckeroth Plumbing & Electric, where the iconic film legend Lee Marvin once worked as an apprentice plumber. Since 2011, countless improvements have been made to transform the property into a FILM CENTER.

Thanks to generous contributors and sweat equity, we have accomplished many of our goals. 

  • The damaged roof was fixed and shingles were replaced.

  • A dingy old storeroom was transformed into a beautiful conference room and office.

  • Thanks to Markertek, a garage that was attached to the main building was transformed into an employee entrance and office space that doubles as a small screening room.

  • Electric and plumbing were brought up to code.

  • Hardwood floors were refinished and interior walls painted.

  • A french drain was put in to stop water damage.

  • The exterior porch was transformed into a fully functional, multi purpose room.

  • The heating system was replaced.

  • And more...
