Milwaukee Film's Cultures & Communities (C&C) initiative prioritizes diverse cultural perspectives, lived experiences, and representations of historically marginalized communities through film, conversation, events, and auxiliary presentations. C&C provides year-round programming created collaboratively between artists, educational institutions, corporations, and community organizations. Presently, C&C includes six programs: Black History Month, Women's History Month, Minority Health Film Festival, Black Lens, Cine Sin Fronteras, and GenreQueer. New programs will be announced soon.
