At the end of 2020 Whit Stillman allowed access to his personal archive of film memorabilia from his company, Westerly Films. Memorabilia from all of his films – signed posters, wardrobe, props, film cells, and scripts have all been made available through The Westerly Films Archive Store & Auction page.
After over two years, the Archive remains open with new and rare items added regularly and ALL authenticated by Whit Stillman and “Damsels in Distress” Actor, Chris Angerman.

We can’t go out this New Year’s Eve. Well, we technically could, but we absolutely should not go out! I’m probably going to spend this NYE reminiscing on an era that I never lived through, but certainly wish I could have experienced for at least a night. Also, I wish I could go back to the Studio 54 exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, so I guess Whit Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco, starring Chloë Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale, will just have to suffice. —Brooke Marine
