The Appleton-based festival celebrating its 11th year has grown into a nationally recognized event in the film community. The Wildwood Film Festival, however, remains true to its Wisconsin roots—all films must have direct ties to the state of Wisconsin.
“Whether it's the primary creative personnel, the actors or even the locations, all projects featured have direct ties to the state,” said Jason Buss, one of the festival’s founders. “We are dedicated to celebrating and embracing Wisconsin film talent.”
Wildwood accepts film entries from more than ten categories including drama, comedy, and music video (for original music only) and most entries are limited to a maximum of 30 minutes. For full entry guidelines, interested participants can visit www.wildwoodfilmfest.com and follow the link to Wildwood’s withoutabox.com account. For information about alternative submission methods, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries will be accepted through December 10, 2011. The entry fee is currently $40 for a standard and $20 for a student entry.
Wildwood Film Festival will be held at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton, Wis. For more information about the festival, visit http://wildwoodfilmfest.com or http://www.facebook.com/

About Wildwood Film Festival
Founded in 2002, the Appleton-based Wildwood Film Festival showcases and celebrates Wisconsin film talent. All films featured have direct ties to the state, whether it’s the creative personnel, actors or locations. The Festival is the primary source of funding for Wildwood Productions, Inc., a non-profit organization that fosters the development of original storytelling in film. Their support is instrumental to the Festival’s mission of nurturing independent artists, inspiring creativity and encouraging variety in the arts. As the organization grows it hopes to educate filmmakers of all ages on the fundamentals of film making such as script development, cinematography and editing.
