Frozen River Film Festival at the WAC—Reprise: Local Films
February 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
Showcasing local talent, this set features locally-made films which have had prior screenings in the Winona area.
Healthy Lake Winona
A group of local citizens formed the Healthy Lake Winona group with the goal to improve the water quality of Lake Winona after it was designated as an impaired body of water by the MN Pollution control Agency. “Healthy Lake Winona” follows the efforts of local organizers dedicated to cleaning up Lake Winona and includes the group’s efforts to address stormwater runoff, invasive species, shoreline erosion and an excessive goose population.
See You At No Name
This documentary short film delves into the heart of No Name Bar in Winona, MN, not just as a venue for incredible live music but as a vital hub for community and artistic expression. Through dynamic footage of live performances and heartfelt interviews with the bar’s owners and local musicians, the film unravels the symbiotic relationship between No Name Bar and the vibrant arts community in Winona. It showcases how this establishment has become more than just a venue; it’s a nurturing space that fosters connections, amplifying the voices of local artists and musicians, making it an indispensable pillar in Winona’s cultural landscape.
“Artemis – In Celebration of Seasoned Women” is a documentary film celebrating women who defy the notion that “women of a certain age” become invisible in society. “Artemis” challenges that mindset by showcasing and showing off a wealth of seasoned female artists, activists, wise owls, biz wiz’s, makers, movers and shakers. “Invisible Woman Syndrome”, (much-hyped by the media) begs the question “Invisible to whom?”
The WAC is pleased to host screenings for the FRFF on February 5, 6, 10 and 11. For information on screenings and to purchase tickets please visit the FRFF website at https://frff.org/
