“Let’s face it, nobody reminisces about the couch they fell asleep on while streaming something alone,” the Wisconsin Film Festival website claims. For 20 years, the festival has been bringing movie lovers together for a more memorable experience. On Wednesday, April 5, the Madison Festival begins with its opening night celebration. The Golden Badger awards begin at 7pm, followed by the opening night program, Mountain. “Afterglow” parties follow the events of the evenings of April 5, 6, and 7.

The festival runs through Thursday, April 12, and features films, food, discussion and dancing. On April 7, the festival offers a free stop-motion workshop during which festgoers can create their own short film. Movies will be screened at four locations throughout Madison: The Marquee, Union South; AMC Madison 6; UW Cinematheque; and Shannon Hall, Memorial Union. More information about the festival, including show times and a complete guide, is available online at 2018.wifilmfest.org.
