Woodstock in Film
Woodstock stories have been made into films. Both the films I’m aware of have made it to the short lists for nominations in the live action short films category for the Oscars, as well as winning other film awards. Both films were also made by Woodstock alumni:
- The Road Home by Rahul Gandotra (available free on the site!)
- Kush by Shubhashish Bhutiani
Woodstock on TV
NDTV’s Rocky and Mayur visit Woodstock to talk about… the food. But the piece covers much else that is fundamental about the school, and shows the environment beautifully.
There are many sites where you can get more information and news about Woodstock (expect this listing to grow, though the date on the post will not change).
SAGE, the organization which sends students to Woodstock (and on educational tours) from the US and other parts of the world.

This is a great list of links! Thank you so much for putting it up.
Thought you might find my website (with blog) appropriate for the alumni website section. My first novel, set in India in the 1960s, comes out next month. The title is Jana Bibi’s Excellent Fortunes. Publisher is Henry Holt & Co. It’s set in a fictional hill station in the Himalayas, with three bazaars and a number of nearby boarding schools…
