Los Angeles, California - February 18, 2008 - "Welcome to Macintosh - The documentary for the rest of us" is an official selection in the "The tenth annual Wisconsin Film Festival" April 3rd - 6th, 2008 in Madison, Wisconsin. The Festival schedule will be announced on Thursday March 6th. Events and screening times updates will be posted regularly to the Welcome to Macintosh website.
Founded in 1999, the Wisconsin Film Festival is the state's premier film festival, in the heart of Madison, their capital city. This four-day annual festival takes place each spring in ten downtown Madison theaters, all within walking distance. The Festival presents new American independent and world cinema (narrative, documentary, shorts, experimental), restored classics, and the work of Wisconsin filmmakers. Over 150 films and an attendance getting close to 30,000 make this a lively event that's become a major part of our state's cultural calendar.
The Festival is a program of the UW Arts Institute, a nonprofit educational unit of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Governed by arts faculty and staff, the Arts Institute represents the collective voice and strength of the arts at the University, and works to make the campus arts more visible and effective. The Arts Institute funds and supports projects with university and community-wide impact, including artist residencies, awards and fellowships, public programs, and arts marketing and outreach.
"Welcome to Macintosh" is a documentary that explores the many ways Apple Computer (now Apple, Inc.) has changed the world. Whether a long time Mac fanatic or new to computers, Welcome to Macintosh takes you from the early days of the Apple-I to the latest and greatest Apple has to offer.
