While this year’s New York Film Festival offers a promising lineup of new films from directors like The Coen Brothers, Alfonso Cuarón, and Claire Denis, cinephiles will find another niche and low-key film festival just two hours upstate. Currently in its 19th year, The Woodstock Film Festival will be held from October 10th-14th this year, and will feature over one hundred films, including feature length narratives and documentaries, as well as shorts. It will even be presenting the directorial debut by Paul Dano, Wildlife, as a centerpiece film, which has been a festival darling since it premiered at Sundance this January.

Marilyn Michaels can impersonate numerous celebrities but Julia Child isn’t one of them–at least not when it comes to the late chef’s culinary prowess. “When it comes to cooking, I just can’t stand on my feet and do it. I hate it so much!”, she said in a recent phone interview with Manhattan Digest. “I guess I’m better at it than I let on but who cares?”, she added. “Who gives a sh**? I really don’t care. By the time I finish cooking something, I’ve lost my appetite. That’s the best diet I know. That’s all. There are so many things I’d rather do like work on the book.”
TV personality Josh McBride was surrounded and showered by a bunch of celebrity love on Saturday night as some major stars came out to help him celebrate his 31st birthday.
Mariel Darling could be one of many things in the entertainment industry: a singer, actress, model and more. What’s even better is that she isn’t just another person trying to make it in Hollywood… she’s the real deal and can easily be the next big thing in the next few months.
