The Cinematheque represents UW-Madison academic departments and student film groups and is dedicated to showcasing the best in international cinema history and fine films which would otherwise never reach Madison screens. As the screening facility of the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research (WCFTR) and a member of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), the Cinematheque regularly showcases archival and other rare prints from around the world. The Cinematheque screens films while the University is in session during the Fall and Spring semesters and for four to five weeks during the summer. The Cinematheque has one of the finest projection facilities in Wisconsin and screens a variety of formats, including DCP (Digitial Cinema Package), 35mm and 16mm (both on reel-to-reel projection systems), and multiple standard and high definition video formats. It is the Cinematheque's policy to screen films only in the best available versions in the correct aspect ratio, and, if silent, at the appropriate speed and with musical accompaniment. Funding has been provided by generous grants from the Anonymous Fund, as well as support from the Chazen Museum of Art. Special thanks to Interim Dean John Eric Wilcots, Associate Dean Susan Zaeske, and the College of Letters and Science for their continued support.


All Cinematheque screenings are free and open to the public on a first-come, first-seated basis. Doors open thirty minutes before showtime. In consideration of our audiences, no one will be admitted 15 minutes after the scheduled start time of any program. Donations are accepted at the door or through our website (http://cinema.wisc.edu/donate). Tax-free charitable donations can be made to the Friends of Film Fund.
