Woodstock Film Festival - Mark Duplass

Vanity Fair


     This year’s Woodstock Film Festival will inaugurate a new award at their Maverick Awards Gala when they present the Fiercely Independent Award to producer, actor, director, writer - Mark Duplass. We welcome him to the show and speak with him about the award, working with his brother, their new HBO show, and more.

Duplass has co-written, co-directed, and co-produced several feature films with his older brother Jay - including The Puffy Chair, Baghead, CyrusJeff, Who Lives at Home, and The Do-Deca-Pentathlon. Fairly regularly in his recent career, he has acted in an indie film because he liked the story being told and the people telling the story - and also produced or executive produced the movie to ensure that story can be told - that the film gets made and into theaters. Some of those projects include Safety Not Guaranteed, Your Sister’s Sister, and The One I Love - which co-stars Elizabeth Moss and is currently in limited release.

Mark Duplass also stars on the FXX series The League, has a recurring role as a midwife on Fox’s The Mindy Project, and other film credits include parts in Greenberg, Zero Dark Thirty, and Tammy.

One of his latest projects - Creep - will screen twice at The Woodstock Film Festival.
