Big Screens, Little Folks

The Wisconsin Film Festival‘s Big Screens, Little Folks (BSLF) series features specially curated full-length and short films for young people that will inspire and delight.

The power of movies opens the world to young audiences, inspiring curiosity, imagination and an appreciation of storytelling and the art of cinema.

Families enjoy public screenings during the opening weekend of the Festival and after school during the week.

School groups attend Student Matinees during the week of the Festival. For information about 2024 Wisconsin Film Festival student matinees, please contact Terry Kerr at

Most Festival films will not be available in local theaters or, for the most part, on streaming services.
