Woodstock film series returns for the season with ‘Dina’

Saturday, Oct. 27, 3 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Billings Farm & Museum announced the fall and winter line-up of its Woodstock Film Series. Jay Craven, director and curator of the series, has provided an array of exceptional narrative and documentary films for 2018-19.  “As I review our selections for the coming season, I see a theme of human indomitability and resilience,” said Craven. “The scheduled films open multiple windows onto the lives of remarkable characters and real-life protagonists. We’ll laugh, maybe shed a tear, and be kept on the edge of our seats.”

The Woodstock Film Series, made possible through the generous support of nearly 50 local businesses, will include a number of area premieres and a rare screening of Charlie Chaplin’s classic comedy, “City Lights,” ranked 11th on the American Film Institute’s list of “the best American films ever made.”

After a short break from its successful first-ever summer series, the Woodstock Vermont Film Series begins the 2018-19 season with Dan Sickles’ and Antonio Santini’s 2017 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner, “Dina,” on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. This unconventional and deeply affecting love story tracks the complex relationship of an outspoken and eccentric suburban woman and a Wal-Mart door greeter, each of them neurologically diverse characters.

Reservations are strongly recommended.

Tickets prices are $11 adults (age 16 and up); $6 children (under age 16). BF&M members receive discounted prices. For a complete list of screenings and to purchase tickets, visit or 802-457-5303.
