Menomonie (WQOW) – The arts scene in the Chippewa Valley is expanding thanks to a new film festival this week in Menomonie.

The Red Cedar Film Festival is the first of its kind in the area and will feature 31 short, full films and documentaries from local and even international artists.

Founder Peter Galante, a film professor at UW-Stout, generated the worldwide interest online.

The venues include the historic Mabel Tainter Theater and the Wilson Park Band Shell where families are encouraged to bring picnics.

“He really was inspired by what’s been going on with the music scene in Eau Claire,” said UW-Stout Professor Anna McCabe. “So, with the Eaux Claires Festival and how that has really brought people from all over to really enjoy the music culture of Eau Claire. Well, we really want people to come to Menomonie to enjoy film in Menomonie and the arts that we have here.”

A jury of film producers and professors will give out nine awards.
