I could have sworn I posted this... but I can't find it.

zettaiyo brought this to my attention again today (or even yesterday, lol idek) and now there is a new Variety article. I could have sworn I posted the original announcement of Richard Linklater's honor as their Maverick of the Year, but I must not have or I didn't tag it or I'm blind, lol but anyway...

To cover our bases:

'Messenger' to preem at Woodstock
Other bows include 'Orson Welles,' 'Neil Young'
by Andrew Stewart

Helmer Oren Moverman's "The Messenger," starring Ben Foster, Woody Harrelson and Samantha Morton, is among 50 premieres at the 10th Woodstock Film Festival.

Pic, making its East Coast preem, is set to screen opening night.

Zac Efron starrer "Me and Orson Welles," directed by the fest's Maverick Award honoree, Richard Linklater, will receive its U.S. bow there, along with Jonathan Demme's music docu "Neil Young Trunk Show."

Grant Heslov's "The Men Who Stare at Goats," about a unit of psychic soldiers in the U.S. military, is set for a sneak peek screening. George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey star.

Not bowing at the festival but screening as a centerpiece film is helmer Miguel Arteta's "Youth in Revolt" from Dimension Films. Michael Cera stars.

Producer Ted Hope is set to receive the Honorary Trailblazer award.

Other films set to screen at Woodstock include Rebecca Miller's "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee," Haim Tabakman's "Eyes Wide Open" (in its U.S. bow) and the docu "Woodstock: Now and Then."

Fest runs Sept. 30-Oct. 4.


Hard to guess if Zefron will try to attend... depends on their shooting schedule in Vancouver, I suppose.

Also there is a great article at the Independent (UK) about Orson Welles. The article, My life with Orson Welles, includes recollections by five individuals who worked with or were influenced by Welles. I'm not going to post the whole thing here, since it isn't really about Zac, but it is worth a read.
