The 2021 Wisconsin Film Festival, presented by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Communication Arts, will take place virtually from May 13, 2021 – May 20, 2021. The festival will present eight solid days of refreshing, view-at-home cinema to a community of film lovers across the state and beyond.
The film festival is co-sponsored by Middle East Studies Program, and will feature two Iranian films that are of interest to our community:
There is No Evil (2020), Iran
