Wildwood Film Festival
Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, Appleton
The 16th Annual Wildwood Film Festival will showcase more than two dozen Wisconsin-connected films. Whether it’s the producer, director, writer, actors or even the locations, all projects featured have direct ties to the state. The event kicks off Friday from 3-5 p.m. with a Fresh Take Town Hall: Exploring Race and Recidivism, hosted by Josh Dukelow from WHBY. The event was inspired by “Halfway,” a film by actor Quinton Aaron (best known for his role as Michael Oher in the 2009 film “The Blind Side” with Sandra Bullock.) Aaron will attend the festival to talk about his film. A free Young Filmmakers Workshop presented by The Production Farm will take place Saturday from 9-11 a.m. at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel. Tickets for Wildwood Film Festival are on sale at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s box office during normal business hours as well as one hour before each showtime.
