Film Wisconsin “Commercial” Contest

How it works:

Create a Film Wisconsin Thirty- Second Ad and receive a $500 funding grant to produce a professional version. The winner of the contest will be shown at the Green Bay Film Festival in Green Bay on March 3rd kick off. They will also receive the $500 funding grant. The commercial may then be aired state wide through local television stations.

The commercial is for filmmakers to come to Wisconsin and produce a film in the state. We may not have incentives, but we have the best scenery, resources, and great people.
