Catch foreign dramas, documentaries, animated shorts and other indie flicks at this year’s Oneota Film Festival, March 2-5 in Decorah. Besides screenings, the four-day festival includes filmmaker Q-and-As, panel discussions and even some crafts, all hosted by six venues in the city’s historic downtown. All of the events are free.

The Filmmaker’s Reception on March 4 is your best chance to mix and mingle with various film folks — casts, crews and other fans. Join the party at 7 p.m. at T-Bocks, a popular bar on Water Street, after a screening of “The Invisible Extinction.”

See the full list of films, check the schedule or sign up to volunteer on the Oneota Film Festival website. Meantime, mark your calendar for more than a dozen other film festivals across the entire state.
