Wisconsin’s Own Filmmakers
Musically Inclined Kicking off with Festival Express on opening night, this series trips from Janis Joplin and The Band to traditional Klezmer music, punk, new wave, hip-hop, one-man bands, and rap as lyrical social protest by indigenous peoples around the world.

Documentary In the last 20 years, American audiences have flocked to non-fiction films and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Documentaries address relevant issues, bring the past into focus, and present personal dramas that are every bit as complex and engrossing as those in fictional films. This year, the Festival presents a special focus on documentaries and non-fiction filmmakers from the United States and around the world. Klezmer on Fish Street co-sponsored by Hillel at the UW-Madison, the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies, and the University Book Store. Selected programs presented in partnership with Wisconsin Public Television.
