Stuck indoors? The Woodstock Film Festival is sharing short and full-length films curated by our alum filmmakers, programmers, industry friends, and staff for you to stream from the comfort of your home. With so many festivals and movie theaters shuttering across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting independent filmmakers is more important than ever. So sit back, cozy up, and enjoy a cinematic escape from quarantines and hand sanitizer shortages!
|AN EXQUISITE TASK|
SELECTED BY OUR ANIMATION CURATORS NOELLE MELODY & JOY BURAN
|ABOUT THE FILMMAKER:|
Beck Underwood rarely knows what she is doing, but is always doing something.
She credits her family and friends with inspiring and encouraging this questionable work ethic. She wakes up on most days surrounded by the bustle of her family, the work of her friends, and rooms and rooms of strange inanimate objects. Sometimes she makes these objects move and sometimes they move her. She is very proud of her collaborations in theater, film, software and product design, and publishing.
She lives in the lower east side of New York City with Scary Larry, a pair of sister cats, and sometimes a boy named Jack.
