A STANDING O FOR MARY C! The 2006 Wisconsin Film Festival would like to especially thank Mary Carbine, for her brilliant guidance in shaping a fledgling campus film gathering into a vibrant statewide celebration. As the Festival Director from 2000 to 2005, Mary brought hundreds of fresh, innovative, memorable films to Madison and gained the Wisconsin Film Festival a national reputation for quality. She established principles of community involvement, progressive programming, and respect for filmmakers and their works that will always be the foundation of the Festival. Please join us in giving Mary Carbine a standing ovation!
