Milwaukee Film Festival

Tuesday, Oct 22, 2019 at 12:30pm

Various Locations in Milwaukee
Milwaukee, WI 53202

With over 350 films, panels, parties, and events, the 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival is our biggest yet, working ever harder at pushing Milwaukee forward as a center for film culture.

The Milwaukee Film Festival festival is an immersive, experiential monument to the artistic, technological, and philosophical power of visual storytelling. It's a celebration of the medium's unique ability to capture the beauty and tumult of the human experience, to bear witness, to give voice to the voiceless—all while never forgetting to have a great time. It's a tribute to the best of film, the best of the visual arts, and the best of human creativity.
