Inspiring kids with film

Here at Milwaukee Film, we believe the children are our future. Through a variety of initiatives—including our wildly popular Education Screenings—our Youth Education programs work to improve students' media literacy and provide school-age youth with an opportunity to participate in film festival experiences. Those efforts have included:
