Mission in Action: Local Events Serve the Community

As a nonprofit organization, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s mission to serve as a gathering place for the community drives every event. Whether it’s hosting a big blockbuster Broadway show, presenting a daytime education performance or hosting a community event, the mission comes to life in many different ways.

In the next few weeks, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is pleased to welcome the Boys & Girl’s Club’s Vintage in the Valley (February 24), Appleton Medical Center’s Laughter is the Best Medicine (March 2) and the 11th Annual Wildwood Film Festival (March 3).

11th Annual Wildwood Film Festival - March 3
The Wildwood Film Festival returns to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center for its 11th Annual event. Every year the festival presents a mix of genres, and there is truly something for all interests. The films submitted range from drama to comedy and from animation to music videos. All films are submitted from current or former Wisconsinites regardless of where they currently live. Some are beginners, and others have been pursuing film for many years. The festival limits all films to thirty minutes or less, so each showtime will have many pieces to catch the interest of the audience. Originally created to showcase Wisconsin filmmakers, the tagline of "Celebrating Wisconsin Film Talent" is as true today as ever.
