Wisconsin Film Festival 2017


A conversation about the impending 2017 Wisconsin Film Festival.

The 2017 Wisconsin Film Festival will be running from March 30 to April 6. We've got three writers leading the preview coverage here at Tone Madison—Mark Riechers, Grant Phipps, and Chris Lay. Grant is also covering the festival a bit for the madison film site LakeFrontRow.

As in years past, previewing the festival means choking down a lot of information and a schedule of dozens of films in a really short window of time. We sat down this week, with our heads still spinning a bit, to discuss what we're looking forward to at this year's festival and how the festival experience is changing. Give the conversation a listen below and keep up with our coverage of this year's festival.
