In its twelfth year, the Wisconsin Film Festival presents a broad range of independent American and world cinema (narrative, documentary, experimental, shorts), restorations and revivals, and locally made pictures from Wisconsin filmmakers. The festival played in eight theaters, all within walking distance, in the heart of the state’s capital city.
The 2010 Wisconsin Film Festival ran from Wednesday, April 14 through Sunday, April 18.
The Festival — possibly the largest campus-based film festival in the United States with a 2010 attendance of 34,539 for 192 films — is presented by the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arts Institute, with the assistance of the UW Department of Communication Arts.
The next Wisconsin Film Festival will take place from Wednesday, March 30 to Sunday, April 3, 2011.
