    My film screened at Eau Claire this year and even though I was unable to attend, the festival staff was extremely communicative and positive and the venues looked terrific. Definitely recommend this young fest!

    Great range of international films, as well as a focus on Wisconsin too. Plus they showed my film! What could be better? Cool hip hotel to stay at, and food delivered to your theater seat! I dig this town of Eau Claire.
