Woodstock wrap up

All I can say is wow! Thank you to all of the super friendly people that put on the 15th annual Woodstock Film Festival. The last few days around the towns that opened their doors to all of these filmmakers was a pure delight. We had two very well received screenings one in Rosendale and the other at Mountain View studios and both venues were superb. I really hope to submit another film to WFF soon, if not I will just go as a casual viewer.

A note from Rory Fellowes

“THE YOUTH JURY PRIZE was awarded to SUDDENLY (USA), directed by Merav Elbaz Belschner, a charming young American with, as you can see, a complex family background but all of it now pure New York. She came to the festival so we all got the chance to meet her. This is a clever film, based on a short story and perfectly realised, with some great performances. It’s a nice conceit, one that appealed to me particularly, as it centres on a writer who is in the middle of a bout of so-called Writer’s Block (we’ve all been there).”
