- Film Guide
If you just spent the last year planning a 15-day-long film festival featuring more than 200 films (not to mention all the panel discussions, conversations, educational activities, after-parties, special guests, and more), how would you celebrate?
With a party, of course!
Needless to say, we’re thrilled to announce that tickets to this year’s official Milwaukee Film Festival Opening Night Party are on sale now.
On Thursday, September 27, from 8:30pm – 1am, we’ll take over Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin and pack the place with more music, dancing, and interactive exhibits than you can shake a 35mm film canister at.
How much bang will you get for your buck? So far, we’ve booked:
* Milwaukee Soul Legend, Harvey Scales, backed by the Kings Go Forth rhythm section
* a live interactive video DJ set by DJ Madhatter from 88NINE RadioMilwaukee
* music throughout the night from one of WMSE 91.7FM’s fantastic DJs
* a traditional Chinese Lion Dance from the ShaoLin Center
* live breaking from the Gravity Benders Breakdance Crew
* a Cinema Hooligante-themed Giant Spider photobooth
* sihouette dancers from Danceworks
* a beauty bar by Neroli
* two FREE drinks courtesy of Bacardi and Grolsch
* delicious hors d’oeuvres compliments of Bartolotta Catering and Events at Pier Wisconsin
* out of this world interactive displays from the geniuses at Stamm Technologies
* and much, much more!
