Our Festival footprint extends from the UW–Madison campus to the AMC Madison 6 at Hilldale. Below are details on our venues, how to get there, where to stay, and what to do while you are in Madison (other than attend our Festival, that is!).

For accessibility and mobility-related questions, visit the venue websites below.

Many Festival admission lines form outside the theater, including those at AMC Madison 6. Please dress appropriately and bring an umbrella if there is a chance of precipitation. All screenings are general admission. We recommend arriving at the venue 30 minutes in advance. To guarantee admittance, ticket holders must arrive 15 minutes before the start of a film. Due to safety regulations, all theaters must be completely cleared of patrons and personal belongings between screenings. Because of this, holding seats between screenings is not permitted.

Bus routes listed below stop within a few blocks of each venue. There may be additional bus routes to venues that are not listed below. Visit the City of Madison’s Metro Transit website for more information, including a bus route planner at
