FILM
FROM FEST FOCUS

Astonishing Debuts At Woodstock FF
With a festival which prides itself as being “fiercely independent”,
the Woodstock Film Festival, which concludes today, is committed to the
discovery of new talents, both behind and in front of the screen. With
budgets that are tight in the extreme, more often that not, the actors
used are new to the screen and unknown to the public (I included myself
in this). However, when a performance of great depth or realism is
given by someone you do not know, my tendency is to pay very close
attention to the end credits and learn the names of the actors who have
so impressed me.
