Robert Zemeckis’s The Walk starringJoseph Gordon-Levitt

The 2015 Woodstock Film Festival (WFF) running September 30 through October 4, is definitely “celebrating its Sweet Sixteen in style” with a stellar lineup of films to be shown in the Hudson Valley towns of Woodstock, Rhinebeck, Rosendale, Saugerties, and Kingston.

“As we enter into our sixteenth year, I reflect upon the past years of gradual growth and am thrilled by how the festival has opened itself up into the world while maintaining the core authenticity and artistry that it was first founded on,” said Woodstock Film Festival’s co-founder and executive director Meira Blaustein. “I invite everyone to come and discover the many national and international selections that make up our 2015 lineup, as each is its own unique gem and in each you will find something that will inspire and move you.”

The Centerpiece Film is The Walk, directed by Robert Zemeckis. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, The Walk tells the story of high-wire extraordinaire Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), as he is guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), to execute his mad plan of walking the immense void between the World Trade Center Towers.
