Woodstock Film Festival unveiled its official 2013 poster art, painted by artist Scott Michael Ackerman. This year’s festival will be held October 2-6 in the arts colony of Woodstock, NY and across the Hudson Valley region, including the historic towns of Kingston, Rhinebeck, Rosendale, and Saugerties.
“I’ve had the pleasure of having my work exhibited in the filmmaker lounge at the Colony Café during the past two Woodstock Film Festivals,” said artist Scott Michael Ackerman. ” Last year, Timothy Hutton bought two of my pieces. That was a real thrill, but it doesn’t top being asked to do the 2013 WFF poster. The painting symbolizes the blossoming of life and reawakening. It’s my hope that it’s an appropriate metaphor for the blossoming that results from all the amazing filmmakers and talent who manifest the creative, fiercely independent spirit that has come to symbolize the Woodstock Film Festival.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Scott onto our roster of artists” said Meira Blaustein, co-founder & executive director of the Woodstock Film Festival. “The vibrancy, boldness, raw talent and passion that flow from each of his paintings are emblematic of the fiercely independent spirit of the Woodstock Film Festival and of the innovative, passionate and thought provoking filmmakers it supports.”
