THE MILWAUKEE MUSLIM FESTIVAL | OCT. 19-22, 2023
The Milwaukee Muslim Film Festival (MMFF) stands as a testament to the transformative power of storytelling through film by promoting understanding, empathy, and unity among all walks of life. MMFF celebrates the vibrant tapestry of Islamic culture and commemorates the shared human spirit that binds us all together, reinforcing the values of compassion, respect, and coexistence.
Launched by the Milwaukee Muslim Women Coalition in 2015, the Milwaukee Muslim Film Festival shares films from around the world to encourage reflection, hold meaningful conversations, and celebrate the Muslim community and their experiences. The festival is one of only a handful of Muslim film festivals in the country and was founded by Janan Najeeb, the current president and founding member of the Milwaukee Muslim Women's Coalition.
Milwaukee FIlm’s dedicated programming team has carefully curated eight films for this year’s Festival from across the globe that transcend countries, languages, and cultures while highlighting the common humanity among people of all races, ethnicities, and religious beliefs.
