MISSION & OBJECTIVE
WEYAUWEGA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
Whatever reflects your own sense of the world, of people, of the ties between people and conveys this personal sensibility to us will be valuable. We want to build a festival which will show the work of people who are finding or at least listening for their own voice. There is no one way. We are looking for all genres of film: narratives, documentaries, features, shorts, comedies, animation, etc. We will have late night screenings featuring especially eccentric or scary pictures. Film workshops and filmmaker forums are also a part of WIFF.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
2013 will mark the third annual Weyauwega International Film Festival. Weyauwega is located about 25 miles from Appleton, WI, and about 45 miles from Green Bay. We also draw audiences from all around Wisconsin.
In 2012 WIFF screened 38 Films from 17 countries over four days, including the Midwest Premiere of HOLY MOTORS. Our best narrative winner, WEST OF THUNDER has gone on to be awarded both the Best Film (Peace) and Best Film (Human Rights) 2012 by the Political Film Society of Hollywood, CA.
The festival will be held in the historic 1915 Gerold Opera House. We have excellent 35mm and Digital projection as well as digital surround sound. The opera house seats over 350 and we also have our own bar for great after screening parties!
Fifty years ago the novel Psycho was written here in Weyauwega by Robert Bloch. The set designer came to this area and you can spot the places on which many of the main locations were based including the Lake Shore Motel.
The area is noted for it's many lakes, cheeses and world class local beer!
