Join us virtually throughout February to celebrate and elevate Black voices and experiences, as we honor Black History Month.

WHO CAN WATCH

All films are available only to viewers within the U.S.

Tickets and passes can be shared with members of the same household, but not beyond that.

 

WHAT TO WATCH

We're offering 30 film titles for Black History Month - so you could watch one per day and still miss a couple. We recommend you start by browsing all the film titles on our website. On Feb. 1, passholders can start your browsing at watch.mkefilm.org and even add titles to your "watch later" list.

 

WHEN TO WATCH

Most films will be available on demand throughout February, starting at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 1. A couple of titles have special restrictions and will only be available for a short time. Those films are clearly marked in the film descriptions.

Passholders are free to watch available films on demand throughout the month. If you have a ticket and start watching your movie, you'll have 48 hours to complete it.

Black History Month programming ends at 11:59 p.m. CT on Sunday, Feb. 28, so matter when you start your film, it won’t be available at midnight.

Virtual events will take place throughout the month - tune in on the Milwaukee Film YouTube or Facebook pages or the Black Lens Facebook page.

 

WHERE TO WATCH

All Black History Month films and events will take place virtually this year.

Pick the comfiest seat you can find, and settle in to enjoy!
