Five Tone Madison writers discuss the 20th annual Wisconsin Film Festival, which runs April 5 through 12.
The 2018 Wisconsin Film Festival starts up on Thursday, April 5, the day this episode comes out, and it runs through April 12, spanning a lineup of nearly 150 feature and short films. Over the past few weeks, we at Tone Madison have been previewing different facets of the festival lineup. To cap off our preview coverage and maybe give you a few more pointers as you try to navigate this year’s festival, the folks who’ve been writing about it got together for a conversation. Chris Lay, Grant Phipps, Edwanike Harbour, Reid Kurkerewicz, and Mark Riechers shared some final thoughts on this year’s selections and traded notes on the evolving WFF experience.
If you need to catch up, here’s everything we’ve run about the festival so far this year:
