Actor Bill Pullman will receive the 2017 Excellence in Acting Award at the Woodstock Film Festival on Saturday October 14. Director Jared Moshe (The Ballad of Lefty Brown) will present Bill Pullman with the award
In addition to receiving the award, the Woodstock Film Festival will screen The Ballad of Lefty Brown in which Bill Pullman gives a tour de force performance as the title character. Festival attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with Pullman, at the annual Actor’s Dialogue on Sunday, October 15.
Bill Pullman commented that he was “Honored to be receiving the Excellence in Acting Award at this year’s Woodstock film festival. I am particularly looking forward to screening The Ballad of Lefty Brown at the Woodstock Film Festival in October – audiences there are ready for an unusually intimate Western that is the coming of age story of a sixty-something sidekick. It was shot in the fall in Montana, so we can see how it stacks up against the foliage colors in Woodstock – both so spectacular.”
Bill Pullman’s versatile acting spans from dramatic roles to comedic roles. Pullman’s acting career also led him into the role of Clyde in Andrew and Alex Smith’s Walking Out, which recently screened as part of the Woodstock Film Festival’s summer screening series.
“Bill Pullman is one of the finest and most versatile actors today,” said Woodstock Film Festival executive director Meira Blaustein. “His performance in The Ballad of Lefty Brown is absolutely outstanding. It is a privilege to recognize his diverse body of work at this year’s festival and we look forward to having him here with us this fall”.
