Freeland Film Festival returns to Green Lake, WI in 2021!

What will the 2021 festival feature? We are hoping to get back into the Green Lake community AND engage the global audience we built during our 2020 virtual festival.

Freeland is a non-profit organization whose vision is a world full of pristine ecosystems and that is free of wildlife trafficking and human slavery. Storytelling is an important tool we use to pursue our vision. Therefore, our festival features local and global stories about people, wildlife, and ecosystems that are withstanding the pressures of a fast moving world, and making a comeback.

Thanks to those of you who supported and virtually attended the event, as well as our in-person festivals in 2018 and 2019! Our virtual festival included feature films and short film packages, Q&As with filmmakers, panels with world-renowned experts, music, and youth workshops. All of our programs centered around our theme of stories that inspire, giving hope and inspiration to participants for a better world.

Look at just a few of the many positive responses from our 2020 audience:

  • “Jim and I thoroughly enjoyed the festival. Our hats are off to you and the team for putting together such an outstanding program.” - Attendee Jeanette C.
  • “It was so well organized and I was honored to be in such fine company.” - Panelist Carole Baskin
  • “I have bragged to a number of people about having a first-rate international film festival right here in our community, it is something we and you (including the whole Freeland staff) can be proud of.” - Attendee Eric G.
  • “I just wanted to say how much Jack and I loved the film festival. It was extremely well done and we can't wait for the next one! Way to go on all your hard work- it definitely was amazing!” - Attendee Lauren G.

Freeland's US office is in Green Lake where its founder, Steve Galster, and Festival Coordinator, sister Evelyn Galster are from. We will be joined again by Festival Producer, Dawn Borchardt, Rich Christian our Executive Producer, and our professional production team. And more importantly, we will once again coordinate and co-produce this weekend event with the local community.
