Festflix & Chill 2017
September 4, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Looking for a cool alternative to the usual Labor Day grilling? Binge watch 2017 Wisconsin Film Festival selections at Festflix & Chill at the Marquee Theater on Labor Day!
While this event is geared towards welcoming new students to the UW–Madison campus, it is open to the public as well.
Starting at 4:00 pm, we’ll screen a selection of 2017 Wisconsin’s Own shorts, including the latest from the star of American Movie Mark Borchardt and the terrifying killer clown horror short, Gags.
At 6:00 pm, catch Contemporary Color, a standout from this year’s Festival, and a film that demands to be seen on a big screen, with the volume pumped! Indie luminaries St. Vincent, David Byrne, tUnE-yArDs, Ad-Rock, Devonté Hynes, Zola Jesus, and more provide the music for this ecstatic concert film—the equally sensational visuals are courtesy of high school color-guard troops from across the United States. An all-inclusive, arty ode to letting your freak flag fly, Contemporary Color is both danceable and inspirational.
