INDIE FILM WISCONSIN ANNOUNCES NEW FILM FESTIVAL

Watertown, Wisconsin, August 23, 2018 – Indie Film Wisconsin announces a new film festival to take place at Watertown, Wisconsin’s historic Towne Cinema, from April 19 to 21, 2019. Located in scenic Jefferson County, the festival is less than an hour’s drive from Madison and Milwaukee.
Indie Film Wisconsin has been at the forefront of discussing and championing the state’s independent film scene for over a decade. Now comes Indie Film Wisconsin’s inaugural film festival: A celebration of the independent film making spirit, and a showcase of independent cinema and new media, not just from Wisconsin but from the world.

The festival was founded by Indie Film Wisconsin’s creator, Wayne Clingman. From his tenure as Commissioner of the City of Racine’s cable access station, through being integral in introducing Wisconsin’s film incentive program and producing his own films, to his work on various film festivals including It Came From Lake Michigan Film Festival, and Sydney, Australia’s A Night of Horror International Film Festival; Clingman’s experience in independent media creation, exhibition, and promotion is wide ranging.

“Indie Film Wisconsin welcomes submissions from all filmmakers, screenwriters, and new media content creators, working in all genres”, says Clingman. “We want this festival to celebrate the unique spirit of independent film, by providing a welcoming space for filmmakers and audience members to interact while enjoying the latest in independent cinema. And by presenting incredible films from around America and the world, we hope to also encourage Wisconsin’s own indie film scene.”

And some self promotion

Jason Love and myself were on  TV  talking about our mafia documentary : The Milwaukee Mob https://www.wisn.com/article/milwaukee-mafia-film-profiles-mob-boss-frank-balistrieri/19640839

Channel 12 did a good job.

 

Was quite the interesting weekend, The Local Paper then a TV Station  before Jason and I showed it to a filled room in the City of Racine. Nice crowd other then the surviving son of Frank  B. coming down and being let’s say a bit upset.

 

Earlier in the year I made this fun reel.
