Another arts venue in Woodstock wants your money

An article in the Times Herald-Record today reports that the Woodstock Film Festival and Hudson Valley Film Commission are raising $600,000 to buy a home for a full-time film center in Woodstock. On their fundraising page for their new capital campaign, the WFF says that the building will

greatly enhance WFF's ability to continue presenting its annual world-class festival. During the 2010 festival, Wednesday Sept. 29 - Sunday Oct. 3, the new Film Center will be used as a central base for operations, box office, souvenir shop, communications and tech headquarters.

The new digs are spaces that the WFF has rented for years: 11-13 Rock City Rd. pictured above.

The WFF isn't the first large arts organization to be raising money for a venue -- the embattled Woodstock Playhouse needs $450,000 to escape foreclosure. Can Woodstock really shoulder two giant arts capital campaigns?
