Founded in 1999, the Festival presents an average of 150 film screenings over eight days every spring, making it the largest university-produced film festival in the nation.

The Festival is known for its diverse film offerings: American independent, international cinema, documentaries, experimental and avant-garde, resorted classics, the Wisconsin’s Own Competition (selections featuring Wisconsin filmmakers, themes, or settings) and Children’s Cinema: Big Screens, Little Folks. The Festival strives to make films screened accessible for all audiences.
