MISSION & OBJECTIVE
To screen films in historic venues with enthusiastic audiences to make the Driftless Film Festival screenings a memorable experience for filmmakers and filmgoers alike.
The festival will have venues stretching from Viroqua, Wisconsin to Galena, Illinois and include educational outreach programs with the local high schools and universities.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Driftless Film Festival was founded by film producer Nicholas Langholff and actor Darren Burrows to showcase independent films in beautiful venues, while enriching the community with face-to-face interaction with the filmmakers.
The festival is named for the Driftless Region in which it is set: an area that covers southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and northwestern Illinois. This region was left unscathed during the last glacial period, creating a unique landscape of rolling hills, bluffs, and deep river valleys that are dotted with quaint, historic towns.
This year, the festival will encompass six Wisconsin communities with screenings in their historic theaters. The communities include Mineral Point, Platteville, Baraboo, Viroqua, Spring Green and Richland Center.
2011 marks our first annual festival with 2010 being our development year.
