Wisconsin Film Festival

May 13 - May 20

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.

Because we are presenting the Festival online, we expect more than 30,000 viewers will participate. The Wisconsin Film Festival is known for its diverse film offerings. Categories include American independent, international cinema, and documentaries. We also screen experimental and avant-garde, and restored classics. The Wisconsin’s Own Competition features Wisconsin filmmakers, themes, or settings. Big Screens, Little Folks features specially curated full-length and short films for young people that will inspire and delight. We strive to make films screened during the Festival accessible for all audiences. A typical experience at the Wisconsin Film Festival – in person or online – is educational and inspirational and works to advance our campus goals of diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility by amplifying the voices of BIPOC, multicultural, international, women, and LGBTQ filmmakers. The Wisconsin Film Festival is a platform for the stories that need to be told and heard now more than ever.

Two Iranian films will be screened at this virtual film festival:
