Film Festival

The Big Water Film Festival Ashland screenings kick off 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 with a special showing of Bayfield director John Hanson's “Prairie Trilogy,” recently remastered and re-released to critical acclaim. The collection of three interrelated films, shot in black and white, take a thoughtful look at what it means to be a Socialist in America. Hanson will be at the festival to answer questions after the film.

The 2018 Big Water Film Festival is the biggest yet — bringing more films to more venues than ever before. This celebration of independent film making, taking place Wednesday through Saturday, includes a diverse array of films from regional directors and films from around the globe. This year, the festival is making a return to Washburn, adding an evening of films at the Harbor View Event Center Thursday at which the audience will be treated to cabaret-style seating and have the opportunity to purchase a beverage.

“I'm excited about having a Washburn night,” said committee member David Garrington. “The festival started in Washburn, and it feels right to have a night of great films there.”
