Festival 2020

The 29th Woods Hole Film Festival will take place from Saturday, July 25th through Saturday, August 1, 2020.   The Woods Hole Film Festival is dedicated to presenting the best independent film from emerging filmmakers from around the world.

COVID-19 IMPACT ON THE WOODS HOLE FILM FESTIVAL, April 27, 2020.

In the early days of the spread of COVID-19 throughout the US, we watched with great concern as film festivals large and small decided to cancel or postpone their events. From early March to now, more than 179 festivals around the world have either cancelled or postponed their live events.
Shortly after the spate of cancellations, and as the universal scope of the pandemic became clear, the festival world came together to support each other and to figure out how to save film festivals.
The result is the development of the Virtual Film Festival.
Over the past few weeks we have been working very hard to determine the best course of action for the 29th Woods Hole Film Festival. We are adamant about doing whatever we can to present this year’s Festival in a structure that incorporates all of the elements of the Woods Hole Film Festival, accounting for health and safety.
For 2020, working with our technology partners, we are planning the first Woods Hole Film Festival, Virtual Edition, and if it is safe and possible, the Festival may also include some Woods Hole based in-person events.
 
Although we are still working out the specifics, we wanted to share the vision of the Woods Hole Film Festival, Virtual Edition.
Dates: July 25 – August 1, 2020
Our goal is to create a virtual Woods Hole Film Festival that is as close as possible to an in-person Woods Hole Film Festival experience in scope and style. The Festival experience will include: Film Screenings; Live events via video and web-conferencing, including Q&A’s with filmmakers; Workshops and Panel Discussions with the Filmmakers-In-Residence and other special guests; Special Events; Music; Coffee & Conversation; Meet the Programmers; Screenplay Winner Staged- Reading; Awards Presentation, virtual group clog dancing and more.
If it is safe and possible, we may host some in-person events in Woods Hole, however that decision will be made closer to the Festival and will be based on the public health and safety recommendations at that time. Please check back often for updates or sign up here for the Festival newsletter so you can receive timely information.

The Festival line-up and film descriptions will be announced online at the end of May, 2020.
