Jason talks about the local angles to the festival, how you can attend and learn!
The Northeast Wisconsin Arts Association is a new, grass roots organization that has recently applied for not-for-profit 501(c)(3) status. NEWAA will be regarded as the conduit and the home for art in Northeast Wisconsin; attracting professionals, inspiring beginners, and bringing people together to learn, educate, celebrate, and build community through art. In communities throughout Northeast Wisconsin, participation in and support of art will flourish as diverse voices, artistic expressions, and opportunities to create and engage in art are accessible to all.

After a short film they created got rejected from another film festival, Jason Buss and his other co-founders decided to start their own festival. That was 17 years ago.
On February 16th and 17th, the 17th Annual Wildwood Film Festival will be held at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. The event will have over 30 short films, a double feature, a community conversation on the topic of human trafficking and a workshop on “The Business of Filmmaking.”
It should be a weekend jam packed with tons of local films, filmmakers and fans.

Jason Buss, Tom Thorne, and Craig Knitt created a film together and submitted it to a film festival. They thought it was a really good film, but it didn’t make the cut. Upset with the festival’s decision, the three decided the only way to avoid the same result in the future, they needed to start their own festival. With that, Wildwood Film Festival was born.
The first festival was actually held in Green Bay, they stopped in Shawano for their second event, but have been an Appleton mainstay each year ever since. Each year, they take over the Kimberly Clark Theater at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center for a weekend and put together some of the best short films from around Wisconsin.
This year’s event has a special event on Friday afternoon, A “Fresh Take” Town Hall: Exploring Race and Recidivism, a free event that ties in perfectly with their Friday feature film. They are also holding a special wrap party at the PAC at the end of the festival.
On today’s episode, Jason and I talk all things Wildwood Film Festival, from that first festival to where they are today. He also provides details for anyone looking to get involved with Wildwood Film Festival.
