About Us

Film can entertain, educate, and empower. It can bring change on levels both intimate and epic. And it's at its best as a communal viewing experience, with the best possible sound and projection. As a non-profit cultural institution, Milwaukee Film's mission is to communicate all of this to the city that we love, in a way that is both true and unique to Milwaukee.


To create a film festival in Milwaukee that is locally beloved, internationally acclaimed, and a true forum for our diverse community; to offer year-round education programs for all ages, teaching the role and power of film in the modern media landscape; to provide strategic support to filmmakers and projects; to do our part to make better the city that has made us better.
