Later Film Fest an anomaly?

Postby Ducatista » Mon Apr 16, 2007 1:14 pm

It's usually at the very end of March/very beginning of April. Much mo better than this mid-April business, IMO.

Are next year's dates already lined up?

dunno, but agree totally. Really sucks to be sitting in a theatre when it was so nice out.

She said they have a feedback page or something on their website. Let it be known. I will too when I get a chance.

My guess is it was later due to the timing of Easter and UW-Madison spring break. So, yeah - an anomaly.

I don't recall offhand whether Easter and SB caused unusually late (or early) fest dates in years past.

The wolf can kiss my formerly disaffected butt.

This year's fest: April 2-5. Just as the Baby Jesus says it should be.

Come to think of it, he had a thing for shepherds, too.

The dates of the Wisconsin Film Festival are set according to the Spring Break calendar of the University of Wisconsin.

Next year's festival dates will be April 16-19, 2010.

I can only imagine there was a deleted post or two in there somewhere. Otherwise what I posted makes no sense at all... and that just couldn't happen.

Now April 14–18. Starting the party on Wednesday does nothing to lessen my disappointment about the mid-April timing. AND no Majestic screenings... crap.

Still, I was excited to get my tickets in the mail last week. (Sans the usual nice little UTBO ticket envelope, what's with that?)

I like this year's lineup—only had to make a few tough choices on our 14-film roster. I feel as though I should've wedged in another film or two for the longer Fest, but by Sunday evening I'll be about movied out.

I'm a bit bummed that it's the same weekend as the Varsity Band Concert. I'm going to movies all five nights, jammed together even after I took all of the Netflix possibilities off of my list, and my partner can only come with me on Friday and Saturday. Still would have loved to have made both, though.
