Artistic Director Paul Sturtz and Managing Director Sandra Thomas discuss the new format, film making, and efforts to make the Wind-Up Fest increasingly inclusive.
Since 1999,the Williamstown Film Festival has brought the finest contemporary films, directors and actors to the pastoral hills of the Berkshires. Each Film Festival season aimed to honor film’s history while concurrently celebrating the present cultural moment.
Wind-Up Fest, Williamstown Film Festival 2.0, shifts the focus to a core of world-class documentary films and their makers, while re-envisioning the festival as a celebration of nonfiction in all of its forms in a truly northern Berkshires experience, incorporating venues across Williamstown and North Adams. It is an enchanted expedition to the fiery core of nonfiction, guided by the world’s most compelling creators of documentaries, podcasts, long-form journalism, live performance and storytelling.
