Woods Gap Movie Festival’s 30th 12 months, operating Saturday through Aug. 7, has a agenda of 52 attribute-length and 98 small movies from 22 international locations, far more than 50 percent directed by women.

The festival puts a spotlight on films and filmmakers with ties to New England, tunes, politics and science — which includes a pageant Film and Science Initiative that provides its have movies, usually with Woods Gap researchers at the main. This 12 months, the festival will provide 22 environment, seven North American, 3 U.S. and 65 New England premieres.

Founder/executive director Judy Laster considers the timetable a single of the most effective ever.

But planning a pageant that features each and every film virtually, plus shut to 90 p.c in person at venues in Woods Hole, Falmouth and Cotuit — with panel conversations, workshops, filmmaker talks and morning Q&As that started July 24 on Fb Reside — also designed “the most difficult calendar year ever,” she states.
