Milwaukee has a lot of local talent and this program is a great showcase for that talent. At Milwaukee Movie Talk we love to shine a spotlight on local films and last year we sat down and talked to the creators of the local production Needlepoint (http://www.milwaukeemovietalk.com/news/an-interview-with-film-maker-jon-phillips-and-crew-about-his-upcoming-short-film-needlepoint). Now their movie is finished and will be premiering at the festival. When we talked to them they kept the plot of the film secretive so we are excited to finally find out what it's all about.
Another short included is Shangri-LA a film staring Mark Borchardt and directed by Drew Rosas and Nick Sommer. Their film Billy Club played at the festival a few years ago and was Milwaukee Movie Talks first partner film with the Milwaukee Film Festival.
Billy Club was the first time we were community partners but it wasn't the last. We have done it every year since. And now it's time to announce that this year we are Community Partners with The Milwaukee Show. The Milwaukee Show has always been on my must see list since I first started going to the festival so it feels good to be a community partner. Some of the best short films of the festival are shown there with a lot of the local talent on hand to talk about their films. We will be giving away tickets and can't wait to see all the great films that will be there.
