Renting the 2007 Wisconsin Film Festival

Post by dane101 on 4/18/2007 3:06pm

wisfilmfest031507_0_0.jpgDane101 spent the last week compiling this list of Wisconsin Film Festival films. The goal of this list is to help you catch the movies you may have wanted to see but just couldn't make. What you see below are essentially two lists. The bottom list is of "unknowns" but includes helpful links to official and unofficial websites that you can return to a few months from now and see if the film you are looking for has been made available. The top list includes movies currently on DVD, DVD release dates, and theatre release dates. If a DVD has been released overseas and not here we have made note of it because in this age of the Internet you should be able to find a way to order it. If a film has been listed as being released to "select cities" we have also listed it, because that could mean a trip back to Madison as a select city. For example, the powerful Into the Silence will be at Sundance 608 on June 22. A number of these films are available at Four Star Video Heaven or will be made available in coming weeks as they are officially released. We hope you find this list helpful.
