The 2017 Milwaukee Film Festival is sure to be as successful as ever. If you’re not familiar with the annual event, it’s a 15-day film-centric experience held every fall in Milwaukee meant to showcase the city’s most talented artists and filmmakers. This year, the festival will take place from September 28 through October 12 at five different locations throughout the city. Locations include the Oriental Theatre, Downer Theatre, Avalon Theater, Times Cinema and Fox Bay Cinema-Grill. There are events, panels, parties, filmmaker services and more happening at varying locations near and around the cinemas.
Entertaining, Educating, and Engaging
This city wide event is a chance for the community to come together to bond over features, shorts and music videos. Milwaukee Film Inc., the nonprofit organization behind the festival, has the goal of entertaining, educating and engaging our community through cinematic experiences. And that’s a mission we can 100% support, as Ian’s Pizza is a big proponent of supporting independent artists and businesses. We think Milwaukee is a pretty cool city full of crazy talented people, and we want to celebrate their talent!
With that being said, we’re proud to be an official restaurant and community partner of the 2017 Milwaukee Film Festival. Beyond promoting the festival as a whole, each community partner also gets paired with a film. The film we were paired with is entitled Without Name and we’re sure it’s going to be a huge hit. This is a dark, cutting-edge horror film about a land surveyor exploring the uncharted wilderness in Ireland during a midlife crisis. And trust us, you won’t want to miss the ending. Grabbing a slice of Ian’s Pizza with your pals before or after a screening is a great way to make your experience even better.
Beyond hosting the annual film festival, Milwaukee Film Inc. throws other incredible film-related events throughout the year. If you’re interested about learning more about this amazing organization, find them on social media or visit https://mkefilm.org/. Happy viewing!
