2022 WFF Covid Policy

On Feb. 14, Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) announced that Dane County’s indoor masking requirement will not be extended after its March 1 expiration. Thanks to the continued decline in COVID-19 cases on and off campus, UW–Madison will also phase out its campus indoor masking requirement; effective March 12, the start of Spring Recess, masks will no longer be required in indoor settings, including on-campus Wisconsin Film Festival screenings.  Screenings that take place in other locations will follow the mask policies of those venues.

We recognize that individuals will have different reactions to mask requirements ending and that for some it may feel stressful.  We encourage those who want to continue to wear masks to do so.  We will respect everyone’s individual choices about masking.

We will make free masks available to patrons at all locations. Many of our staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks throughout the Festival. Please help us make this year’s Festival safe and enjoyable for all attendees.

The Wisconsin Film Festival is presented by the UW–Madison Department of Communication Arts.

Founded in 1999, the Festival presents an average of 150 film screenings over 8 days every spring. The Festival is known for its diverse film offerings. Categories include American independent, international cinema, and documentaries. We also screen experimental and avant-garde, and restored classics. The Wisconsin’s Own section of the Festival features Wisconsin filmmakers, themes, or settings. Big Screens, Little Folks features specially curated full-length and short films for young people that will inspire and delight. We strive to make films screened during the Festival accessible for all audiences.
