The Woods Hole Film Festival was founded in 1991 by Judith Laster and Kate Davis.

Over the years, it has grown from a one-day invitational event to an eight-day event with films submitted from around the world. The Festival is held each year from the last Saturday of July through the first Saturday of August in the picturesque village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The Festival screens around 100 films culled from more than 700 submissions[1] and offers daily screenings of independent film, workshops, panel discussions, special events, readings, and informal get-togethers. Woods Hole is the oldest independent film festival on Cape Cod[2] and, while the Festival is dedicated to screening the work of emerging independent filmmakers—with a special emphasis on New England films and filmmakers—it also screens work and hosts filmmakers from around the world.

The Festival especially fosters the work of Cape Cod filmmakers and is dedicated to maintaining a local independent film community. In addition to the summer Festival, the Woods Hole Film Festival hosts year-round screenings, workshops and special events.
