Weyauwega International Film Festival
November 8-11, 2017 at the Gerold Opera House in Weyauwega, Wisconsin
We are here to celebrate film and filmmaking and to bring filmmakers together from around the world to share their work with our film going public as well as each other.
Whatever reflects your own sense of the world, of people, of the ties between people and conveys this personal sensibility to us will be valuable. At WIFF we show the work of filmmakers who are finding or at least listening for their own voice. There is no one way. We are looking for all genres of film: narratives, documentaries, features, shorts, comedies, experimental, animation, etc. More than half of our films are foreign language films. We will have late night screenings featuring especially eccentric or scary pictures. Film workshops and filmmaker forums are also a part of WIFF.
We award cash prizes to the best jury selected films in five different categories: Narrative Feature, Narrative Short, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short, Foreign Language Film.
