Micro-Wave Cinema Series concludes four years of indie programming with five screenings in Spring 2018

Final series will debut with David Franklin’s As Far as the Eye Can See on Sunday, February 11, 7:00pm in 4070 Vilas Hall

The Micro-Wave Cinema Series announced on its Facebook page that it would conclude its programming in Madison with a series of four feature films and one night of shorts for Spring 2018.

The final series will kick-off with David Franklin’s As Far as the Eye Can See on Sunday, February 11. The film stars Jason London (Dazed and Confused) as a 40-year-old former piano prodigy now living on his family’s North Texas farm that has gone fallow.

“I hope we go out with a bang,” Micro-Wave programmer Brandon Colvin explains in the Facebook post, “I’m moving to Arkansas, where I hope to resurrect MWCS in the near future. It’s been a great four years.” The final Madison screening on Sunday, April 29 will be Colvin’s own Sabbatical, starring Robert Longstreet and Kentucker Audley, which previously screened at the 2014 Wisconsin Film Festival.
