This year in the festival guide makes it easy for you to find movies you might like. They have their Quick Picks based on what kind of movies you like and who you are going with. If you never been to a film fest before this is a great place to start. I thought about writing up a list of movie recommendations but there are plenty others out there and wanted to do something different (If you are looking for a list of recommendations Matt Mueller of OnMilwaukee.com wrote an excellent list). I could write up what movies I plan on going to see but my tastes aren't for everyone and I encourage everyone to seek out movies that are in line with their tastes.
What I decided to do is highlight things that make the Milwaukee Film Festival special. Not only are there great movies but it’s an excellent opportunity to experience different things. No matter what movies you like there are things at the festival everyone should take advantage of. And this list is only the film related things. There are plenty of other great events surrounding the festival like live music, special gatherings, panels about everything from education to crime, and parties.
Check out the list below.
