We focus on fostering film talent. We not only give film makers a place to exhibit their work but also serve as an outlet for them to be viewed and enjoyed. Over our history we have programmed more than 400 short films.

If you were ever part of this great place we call Wisconsin, we would love to have you submit a film. Wisconsin has been and still is home to some wonderfully creative people and we would love to have you showcase your work with us.

"Celebrating Wisconsin Film Talent" for over fourteen years!



Film makers must have a connection to Wisconsin to qualify for the Wildwood Film Festival.

We looked around and realized that we are in the heart of the third largest metro area in Wisconsin as well as the fastest growing and there was no film festival. We are definitely a need in as well as an asset to the city of Appleton, Northeast Wisconsin, and the film community as a whole.

Goals -
-To provide an outlet for Independent film in the area.
-To be able to hold workshops on various aspects of film making open to all skill levels.
-To create a small granting ability to help beginning directors is also part of the vision.

The Wildwood Film Festival is the primary source of funding for Wildwood Productions Inc, a 501c3, non-profit.
