This year our calendars look a little different as we See The World through Milwaukee Film's first-ever springtime Festival. But one thing that hasn't changed: Milwaukee Film depends on YOU to support everything we do. (Cue all the confetti and heart eye emojis.)

5/14 UPDATE!  The Double-Up has been extended! Private screening giveaway!


We're happy to announce this morning that our friends Susan and Bob Mikulay have generously offered to continue to DOUBLE donations made up to $75,000 through the duration of the festival.

We want to give something back to you beyond the satisfaction of helping sustain us through these unprecedented times, so we've come up with a very special raffle...

Anyone who donates (or has already donated) to Milwaukee Film’s Double-Up Challenge will be included in a raffle for the chance to receive a private screening with up to 49 friends at the newly restored Oriental Theatre. To sweeten the deal, we'll throw in the soda and popcorn, too.

The opportunity to watch a movie in an actual movie palace surrounded by actual people you say? We promise you’re not dreaming!

Limit one raffle entry per person. Anyone who donates or has previously donated to Milwaukee Film's Double-Up is eligible for the raffle. The winner’s private screening will take place no sooner than 30 days after the Oriental reopens and no later than 365 days after that date, on a mutually agreeable date and time between the raffle winner and Milwaukee Film. Limit 50 people maximum for screening. Free popcorn and soda included; all other items will be available for purchase. The film played at the screening is up to the winner, but must be available for Milwaukee Film to secure the rights to it. Winners will be required to abide by any safety measures the Oriental Theatre has in place. Raffle will close at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 20, and the winner will be announced the following week.
