Wow, I'm getting paid to go to movies ...


Without further ado, here is my Woodstock Film Festival schedule. See if you can keep up:

Thursday

8:30 p.m. -- Screening of "Dark Matter" starring Meryl Streep and Ulster County resident Aidan Quinn at Bearsville Theater
10 p.m.-? -- Opening night gala (also top secret)

Friday
Noon -- Interview at The Colony Cafe with attorney Steven Beer, who most recently was counsel on "This Film is Not Yet Rated" and producer on "Strange Culture." Beer is speaking at Friday's Entertainment Law panel at 2 p.m. at Utopia Studios in Woodstock.
2 p.m. -- Screening of "How to Cook Your Life" at Tinker Street Cinema in Woodstock
6 p.m. -- Reception for the photography exhibition, "Fear and Loathing in Mexico ... Hunter S. Thompson," at East Village Collective
7 p.m. -- Screening of "Oswald's Ghost" at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck

Saturday
10 a.m. -- Amazing Women in Film panel featuring Mary Stuart Masterson at Utopia Studios
Noon -- Screening of Shorts Program 5, which includes "High Falls," at Rosendale Theatre
1:45 p.m. -- Screening of Masterson's directorial debut, "The Cake Eaters" at Bearsville Theater in Woodstock (another crazy driving schedule)

9:30 p.m. Awards ceremony followed by party (another secret location)

The schedule doesn't even include the time spent chatting up filmmakers at The Colony Cafe. I'm exhausted just typing this ...
