First Northwoods Film Festival opens Friday in Woodruff
WOODRUFF - A new festival in the area aims to make independent films available to people who might not normally see them.

The first Northwoods Film Festival is Friday and Saturday at the Lakeland Cinema 6 in Woodruff.

On Friday, the festival will show "The Biggest Little Farm" and "Wild Rose."

"Maiden" and "Juliet, Naked" are films scheduled for Saturday night.

"This year, we just wanted our films to be something that everyone could engage with. We weren't looking for films with a super strong agenda," said Northwoods Film Festival Executive Director Bess Donoghue. "We just wanted films that introduce to topics that you might not normally have heard about, that might have opened up your heart, that just kind of made you excited."

Donoghue said she hopes audiences embrace cinema as it was originally intended, with other community members.

"If there's just a few people who get excited about seeing films that they might not normally see, being here in northern Wisconsin, that, to me, is going to be a huge success," she said.

Tickets for each film are $10, or $35 for a pass to all four films.
