Woodstock film fest expands to Mexico, London

London screenings set for June; four-day Cabo event in Nov. 2013

Looking to expand, the Woodstock Film Festival has its sights set on two very different locales: Cabo, Mexico, and London.

Executive director and co-founder Meira Blaustein will serve as executive director of the Cabo Film Festival, held in association with the Woodstock fest. The fest plans to hold four nights of events at more than eight venues across the resort city, and will also organize special events on the city’s beaches. Fest opens its inaugural run November 2013.

On top of that, Woodstock FF is holding special screenings of two films at London’s Curzon art house theater June 12-13.

The first night features helmer Lisa Albright’s “Coming Up Roses,” starring Bernadette Peters and Rachel Brosnahan. Pic follows a theatrical mother and young daughter who cope with depression and money problems as they travel through small-town America.

Dani Menkin and Yonatan Nir’s documentary “Dolphin Boy” screens the second night, and follows a traumatized Israeli-Arab boy whose recovery is aided by dolphin therapy.

The 13th Woodstock Film Festival will be held Oct. 10-14 in Woodstock, N.Y,, and the neighboring towns of Rhinebeck, Saugerties, Boiceville, Kingston and Rosendale.
