2023 Wisconsin Film Festival
April 13 - April 20
Some festivals rely entirely on submissions for their titles. Others are completely curated and programmed without a request for submissions. The Wisconsin Film Festival works to showcase local talent while presenting films from around the globe.
The Festival presents quality work from outside the mainstream film industry. Many of these films may not otherwise reach commercial theaters. We look for films that represent different facets of filmmaking, from polished productions to no-budget gems. Each year’s selections are a blend of films made available to festivals, scouted from around the world, combined with smaller, under-the-radar works that illustrate a variety of cinematic styles.
We work to bring great motion pictures to Madison for well-organized screenings in front of enthusiastic crowds. Tickets are reasonably priced and available to all.
The Festival is presented at a variety of screens both on and off the University of Wisconsin campus. All of our venues strive to be state-of-the art screening spaces offering superb high-definition video and 35mm projection. Films are screened on DCP, 35mm, 16mm, or high-quality digital files.
