The 2022 Woodstock Film Festival is this Wednesday through Sunday Sept. 28 – Oct. 2. Once again, one of Upstate NY’s premiere film fests has a stellar lineup of films with major stars, directors and awards buzz.
It kicks off Wednesday night with a screening of “Remember This”, starring Academy Award nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night and Good Luck”), who will be attending to do an in-person Q&A.
Thursday has the highly-anticipated Korean film “Broker” and the Emily Watson-led drama “God’s Creatures”. On Friday morning it’s the animated film “My Love Affair with Marriage” (which also screened at Tribeca earlier this year). And on Friday evening, it’s the first of two showings of Amazon’s “My Policeman” starring Harry Styles.
Saturday’s showcases include “Linoleum” with Jim Gaffigan, Apple’s “Raymond & Ray” with Ethan Hawke and Ewan McGregor, Sony Classics documentary “The Return of Tanya Tucker — Featuring Brandi Carlile”, Sally Hawkins in “The Lost King” and western “Dead for a Dollar” starring Christoph Waltz and Rachel Brosnahan.
And on Sunday, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson re-team with “In Bruges” director Martin McDonagh for Searchlight’s awards contender “The Banshees of Inisherin”. Later in the day, NEON presents its Cannes Palme d’Or winner “Triangle of Sadness” with Woody Harrelson and the late Charlbi Dean. And to wrap-up the fest on Sunday night, it’s Olivia Colman and Colin Firth in Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” (also from Searchlight).
