ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
In 2009, the Milwaukee Film Festival had its inaugural run. That year, MKE Film screened more than 100 films at three venues. In 2017, more than 300 festival-quality films were screened across five Milwaukee venues. Festival attendance has increased every year since its inception; in 2017, attendance hovered around 84,000, and about 4,000 of those folks were our beloved MKE Film members.
The 2020 Milwaukee Film Festival runs all-virtual with 197 film titles. Opening the festival is “I Used to Go Here” directed by Kris Rey.
Milwaukee Film will hold two virtual film festivals this fall – the 12th Milwaukee Film Festival, and the 2nd Minority Health Film Festival.
