Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is a haunting road movie traveling a path of love, loss, acceptance and peace.

“After successfully transitioning back to an in-person format for the 2021 film festival, we look forward to welcoming our patrons, filmmakers and friends back to the theaters this winter,” said Woodstock Film Festival Co-Founder & Executive Director Meira Blaustein. “In these uncertain times, supporting and working together with our peers in the arts sector is paramount.”

The 23rd annual Woodstock Film Festival will return to the Hudson Valley next fall, from September 28 through October 2, 2022. For more information about submissions and the organization’s year-round event calendar, visit woodstockfilmfestival.org.
