The Woods Hole Film Festival (WHFF) celebrates its 30th year, with 52 feature length and 98 short films from 22 countries, more than half directed by women. Some films will screen in person at Redfield Auditorium in Woods Hole, the Simon Center for the Arts at Falmouth Academy, and the Cotuit Center for the Arts; all films will also be available for streaming online. This year’s edition also includes the festival’s trademark events, including both in-person and virtual Q&A’s with filmmakers, workshops and master classes with Filmmaker-in-Residence Alexis Gambis, panel discussions, morning filmmaker chats, parties, and an awards ceremony.
The festival includes a mix of first-time and veteran filmmakers (many having participated in the festival several times previously) with a focus on films and filmmakers with ties to New England, science, music, and politics. There are 22 world, 7 North American, 3 US, and 65 New England premieres.
