The fiercely independent Woodstock Film Festival returns to venues throughout the bucolic Hudson Valley towns of Woodstock, Kingston, Rosendale and Saugerties, and online for its 23rd Anniversary, September 28 – October 2, 2022.

Hailed as a “True American Maverick Among Festivals,” and named among the top 50 film festivals worldwide, the Woodstock Film Festival continues its tradition of hosting the most talented, emerging and outstanding film professionals in the industry.

This year’s 5-day festival highlights 48 exceptional feature films as well as 98 impressive shorts, intimate filmmaker panel discussions with prominent industry figures, a live musical performance, and a glowing awards ceremony.

This is the first year that short films that win at The Woodstock Film Festival in the categories of Best Short Narrative, Best Animated Short, and Best Short Documentary will automatically be eligible to be nominated for an Academy Award® in their respective categories.
