The 2022 Wisconsin Film Festival returns in person tomorrow, April 7 — kicking off a weeklong celebration of world cinema right here in Madison. The event is a culmination of global screenwriters, directors, designers + more bringing 150 films to the 608. We’re breaking down best practices for making this year’s festival a perfect take.

🎟️ Let’s talk tickets

The easiest + fastest way to grab tickets for the event is by making an account on the festival website. Moviegoers can opt for individual tickets or an all-festival pass — allowing for unlimited screenings during non-overlapping shows. Tickets will also be available during the festival at all venues for same-day purchases.

Pro tip: UW-Madison students are eligible for one free ticket at any venue, all festival long. Provide a valid WisCard and a seat is yours free of charge.

🎬 Where are we watching

Pro tip: Screenings at the AMC Madison 6 offer assistive screening technology + you can learn more about venue accessibility from staff.
