Description: To kick off the 20th Annual Wisconsin Film Festival (April 5-12), we return to the renovated and revitalized Wisconsin Union Theater – Shannon Hall, Memorial Union on Thursday, April 5, 2018 for the Opening Night Celebration, an evening in which we will scale the heights in a bid to reach peak movie-going merriment.

The Celebration will start in the Sunset Lounge at 5:30 pm for a catered reception, then move to Shannon Hall at 7:00 pm for the Golden Badger Awards presentation and our Opening Night program, Mountain. After the films, hustle down the hall to Der Rathskeller with us for a freewheeling disco dance party with local favorites, VO5, starting at 9:00 pm.
