Chippewa Valley Film Festival

Eau Claire, Wisconsin

April 21, 2018

The Chippewa Valley Film Festival (CVFF) was  held at Micon Cinemas Saturday, April 21, 2018.  For this year, the festival showcased short films that were no more than twenty minutes in length.  The art of the short film is creating compelling images and sound that support an excellent structured plot, all within a few minutes.

Last year, the festival received about seven hundred entries for the festival. Entries came from local, regional and international filmmakers, student and professional, and include a broad range of genres: drama, comedy, animation, documentary and experimental. 


The event was organized into several programs with a question and answer with the attending filmmakers. This year,  Kevin Pontuti showed his awarding winning videos and discussed an aspect of the production for each video. After the event, the audience had the opportunity to discuss the films and meet the attending filmmakers.
