Weyauwega International Film Festival gets the reels rolling today


It’s four jam-packed days with filmmakers, actors and movies you’re not going to see anywhere else.

There’s no greater place for cinema buffs than Main Street Weyauwega.

The Weyauwega International Film Festival will begin its run at 3:30 p.m. today at the Gerold Opera House. 

The festival will start with a screening of the documentary feature, “Dreaming of a Vetter World.”

At 5 p.m., the festival will begin a short film program featuring seven pieces. Films will represent Germany and France. Two were created here in Wisconsin.

At 7 p.m. , film historian Dr. Jack Rhodes will introduce the festival’s classic feature of the year — Billy Wilder’s “Double Indemnity” of 1944 starring Barbara Stanwyck and Fred Macmurray. 

It’s the ninth annual festival and organizers spread highlights throughout the schedule.
