We believe Menomonie, Wisconsin, is unique and special. It has natural beauty, such as that of the Red Cedar River, a thriving local economy along with big industrial partners, and the University of Wisconsin-Stout to support and advance education and business. Calling such a unique place home is exactly what we are doing with the Red Cedar Film Festival.

We had a successful 2019 inaugural festival! It was and will continue to be an exciting event for residents and a destination for those who want to experience what Menomonie has to offer, along with supporting the creative art of independent films

The goal is to grow the Red Cedar Film Festival in hopes of becoming a Midwestern version of the Sundance Film Festival, which generates about $80 million in 10 days for Park City, Utah. That town is half the size of Menomonie. The smallest percentage of that would make a sizable impact in our community. The Sundance Film Festival is also in its 40th year of promoting and supporting independent films. We continue to look for partners who have as much Menomonie pride as we do, who want to see this community thrive and become a destination for: arts, business and outdoor enthusiasts. Will you be a partner?

Please see the enclosed sponsorship level information. We will be in-touch within a week to talk with you further about this event and possible collaboration. We would love to have you on-board!
