50 Films Premiere at Woodstock Film Festival

The Woodstock Film Festival premiere 50 films on its 10-year anniversary.

The festival announced its lineup for the Sept. 30-Oct. 4 bash, set for the Town of Woodstock. It also announced film producer Ted Hope will receive the festival's annual Trailblazer award.

Opening the festival is “The Messenger,” directed by Oren Moverman. The festival's centerpiece film is “Youth in Revolt,” starring Michael Cera in a coming-of-age story directed by Miguel Arteta.

Special screenings include, “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee”; “The Men Who Stare at Goats”; “Eyes Wide Open”; and “Me and Orson Welles,” directed by Richard Linklater, recipient of the 2009 Maverick award.

A “Focus on Music” series of films will harken back to the spirit of the 1969 Woodstock festival, which is celebrating its 40-year anniversary. Films include “Woodstock: Now & Then” and “Mighty Uke,” a film that looks at the ukelele as an instrument for self-expression.

Stars who have been invited to the festival, or will attend, include Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, Sam Rockwell and Uma Thurman.
