Watch multiple short films made by local, regional and international filmmakers. Stop in any time and stay as long as you'd like. WIFI Film Festival celebrates film production and education in film.
The Washburn International Film Institute Film Festival is a free event designed for the Topeka community.
The WIFI Film Festival was created by the Washburn University mass media department in fall of 2018 and the first festival took place in spring 2019. Each year the festival receives numerous film submissions and has received over 2,000 submissions from over 100 countries.
At the core of WIFI’s inception is the belief that cinema is one of the most democratic arts with its ability to reach large audiences on an accessible and inclusive level. The festival is dedicated to promoting and celebrating film production, stories from the Midwest, and education at Washburn University, in the Topeka community, and in the state of Kansas.
Each year, the WIFI Film Festival adopts a theme that it promotes through its work in the community and on campus. This year, the festival has adopted Washburn University’s spring 2023 theme: Health and Healing.
