2019 Film Festival Ticket FAQs

What are festival passes, 6-packs, and 10-packs?
  • Festival pass: Grants the holder access to every screening during the Milwaukee Film Festival except the Super-Secret Member Screening, which is available only to Milwaukee Film Members. Also gives access to the Opening Night party on Oct. 17. Prices for passes increase starting Aug. 1 and again on Oct. 1. Limited quantities are available at each pricing stage.
  • Festival 6-packs: Six electronic vouchers that can be exchanged for tickets to non-premium screenings once tickets are available in October. Voucher 6-packs offer a discount compared to the price of individual tickets. Prices for 6-packs increase starting Aug. 1; 6-packs are not available after Sept. 30. Limited quantities are available at each pricing stage.
  • Festival 10-packs: New for 2019! Ten electronic vouchers that can be exchanged for tickets to non-premium screenings once tickets are available in October. Voucher 10-packs offer an even greater discount compared to the price of individual tickets or 6-packs. Prices for 10-packs increase starting Aug. 1; 10-packs are not available after Sept. 30. Limited quantities are available at each pricing stage.
The Milwaukee Film Festival isn't until mid-October, why should I plan this far ahead?

You know the old saying: Early bird gets the best discounts at the Milwaukee Film Festival. (Something like that.) Our best pricing runs through July 31, but quantities are limited at each pricing stage for Festival passes and our 6- and 10-packs of vouchers. If you want to fest with us, there's no time like the present!

Can I just get a single ticket to the Festival?

Absolutely! You can purchase single tickets in October, after all of our film screenings are scheduled.

Does the Festival pass mean Iā€™m guaranteed a seat at every screening?

Not quite. We’ll hold a limited number of seats open for passholders at every screening, but you still have to get there at least 15 minutes in advance to claim your seat - and you may need to get there even earlier if a screening is in high demand. Apart from those limitations, the only film that you can’t see with just a Festival pass is the Members-only Super-Secret Screening. That requires, well, membership.

Are there any limitations on what films I can see with a 6-pack or 10-pack?

Yep, just a few. Any Festival vouchers, including those sold in 6- and 10-packs, can only be redeemed for tickets to non-premium screenings. Premium screenings include our Opening Night, Centerpiece, and Closing Night films, as well as other high-demand screenings. These will be noted on the website and in our program book.

Can I get a Member discount if I become a Milwaukee Film Member right now?

Absolutely. If you become a Milwaukee Film Member at mkefilm.org/membership, you’ll be able to enjoy our Member discount for Festival passes, 6-packs, and 10-packs as soon as you get your login info. Plus, you’ll get many other incredible benefits, not the least of which is that good feeling of supporting our nonprofit.
