Indie Film Wisconsin has been at the forefront of discussing and championing the state's independent film scene for over a decade.
Now comes Indie Film Wisconsin Film Festival's second year. A celebration of the independent film making spirit and a showcase of independent cinema and new media. Not just from Wisconsin but from around the world.
The festival was founded by Indie Film Wisconsin's creator, Wayne Clingman. From his tenure as Commissioner of the City of Racine's cable access station, through being integral in introducing Wisconsin’s film incentive program and producing his own films, to his work on various film festivals including It Came From Lake Michigan Film Festival and Sydney, Australia's A Night of Horror International Film Festival; Wayne's experience in independent media creation, exhibition, and promotion is wide ranging.
Indie Film Wisconsin welcomes submissions from filmmakers, screenwriters, and new media content creators, working in all genres. We want to celebrate the unique spirit of independent film, by providing a welcoming space for filmmakers and audience members to interact an enjoy the latest in indie cinema from around the globe.
The fest's venue is the 7th Avenue Theater in historic Kenosha, Wisconsin. The move brings the festival closer to Milwaukee and Chicago, which presents better infrastructure for exhibition. The festival takes place less than an hour's drive from Milwaukee. Hotels, bars and restaurants are within walking distance of the cinema.
