I program and operate a screening series on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus called the Micro-Wave Cinema Series.The Micro-Wave Cinema Series exists to highlight the most adventurous, provocative, and beautiful work being made by American independent film­ makers.

The films I program often do not have distribution deals or may have been overlooked by other critics and programmers, despite their excellence. Screenings are always accompanied by Q&A sessions with the film's director. All screenings are free and take place on Sundays @ 7:00 PM in Vilas Hall 4070, Madison, WI.

Our Spring 2017 series can be downloaded here, or seen below. 

The best place for screening news and information is our Facebook page. You can also follow MWCS on Twitter.

You can read an interview with me about programming Micro-Wave here.
