The Driftless Film Festival was founded by film producer Nicholas Langholff, actor Darren Burrows, and theater chain manager Jeremy Patnaude, with the help of Tri-State Tourism and the Platteville Chamber of Commerce, to showcase independent films in beautiful venues, while enriching the community with face-to-face interaction with the filmmakers.

The festival is named for the Driftless Region in which it is set: an area that covers southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and northwestern Illinois. This region was left unscathed during the last glacial period, creating a unique landscape of rolling hills, bluffs, and deep river valleys that are dotted with quaint, historic towns.

We hope that showing films in historic venues with enthusiastic audiences will make the Driftless Film Festival screenings a memorable experience for filmmakers and filmgoers alike.
