The Driftless area, a unique region that escaped the glaciers of the ice age, is an inspirational setting to many talented artists and filmmakers. Its hills and valleys provide beauty, inspiration… and great venues for filming!

The Driftless Area Film Festival is a celebration of independent cinema in the beautifully restored Mineral Point Opera House in the heart of downtown Mineral Point, the “Shake Rag Alley” area, and more. This annual film festival features both award-winning independent films and Wisconsin-based productions while enriching the community with face-to-face interaction with the filmmakers.

This runs from Thursday, November 5th through Monday the 9th, so you have a lot of options for when to attend! Check their website for a full slate of films and other activities.

Enjoy a drive with exceptional scenery, as the Driftless Area of Wisconsin is ridiculously beautiful. Hit Highways 23, 39, or U.S. 151 to reach Mineral Point, south of Dodgeville and northeast of Platteville and take it all in!
