Thank you to all of the new readers who checked out the participating websites. We hope to continue the Missed Madison Film Festival next year, so please give us any feedback or suggestions you have in the comments below or on our Facebook event page.

In addition to links to the reviews and podcasts, we’ve included links to local and streaming resources where you can find the films. For titles that have not been released for home video, we recommend that you sign up at GoWatchIt and add them to your queue so that you will receive updates when they become available.

Be sure to check out Capital Times film critic Rob Thomas’s shout out to the Missed Madison Film Festival at his Madison Movie blog.

The January 7 issue of Isthmus is no longer on the stands, but you can still read Jay Rath’s article about the Missed Madison Film Festival online.

Go to the WORT-FM archives to listen to the “Wages of Cinema” segment of the January 12 episode of Fire Worship! (cue to 1:34:40). Host JoAnne Powers moderated a discussion of the Missed Madison Film Festival with Madison Film Forum’s James Kreul, Four Star’s Lewis Peterson, and LakeFrontRow’s Grant Phipps.
