The Wisconsin Union Directorate Film Committee is a student-run committee dedicated to offering entertaining and innovative programming. Since 1940, we program quality films for free, and they always will be. Each week we aim for a diverse schedule of programming that will engage the UW-Madison community in the cinematic art. The committee looks to not only play different genres, but also films that educate, are popular, on the cutting edge of technology, attract all audiences, and most importantly, create a unique film-watching experience. As we schedule films throughout the school year, we maintain our simple, but effective motto, "WUD Film, Good Film."

Students of all majors and varied knowledge of film participate in the committee through one of many responsibilities, including programming decisions, working with distributors, marketing the films, and organizing the events.
