Titled "Woodshock", the movie has been both written and directed by Rodarte founders Kate and Laura Mulleavy, and has been selected to show in the "Movie in the Garden" section by the festival's committee.

According to the event's official schedule, "Woodshock" will be presented on September 3 to the press and the following day to the public.

Shot in Northern California near Eureka in 2015, the movie is described as "a hypnotic exploration of isolation, paranoia and grief that exists in a dream world all its own", and stars US actress Kirsten Dunst in the lead role, with actors Pilou Asbæk; Lorelei Linklater, director Richard Linklater's daughter, and Joe Cole completing the cast.

Created by the Mulleavy sisters in 2005, the Rodarte fashion label has received a number of industry awards since its inception, and most recently showed its Spring 2018 collection, in the Cloître Port Royal gardens as part of Paris couture week this year.
