Milwaukee Film Festival 

October 17-31, 2019 / Milwaukee, Wisconsin / mkefilm.org

Having celebrated its 10th year in 2018, the festival has tripled its screening output in a decade, going from 100 films screened at three venues to over 300 across five. Festival programs include Black Lens, which focuses on black creators, Cine Sin Fronteras, featuring LatinX and indigenous creators, and Beyond the Film, a discussion initiative that curates conversations between attendees and industry pros and also facilitates filmmaker conferences. There’s also Teen Screen, a program curated by teenagers and Cream City Cinema, a juried competition for best Milwaukee-created film, with cash prizes. One panelist observes: “An exceptionally well-resourced festival with strong programming that refreshingly emphasizes bringing a large, multi-layered lineup, rather than bucking horns with other mar- kets for premieres or overthinking where they fall in the year’s festival calendar.”

    The Artis Center in Naples, Fl is really extraordinary. It’s the hub of performing arts, music, and film in Southwest Florida. It’s the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Symphony all in one – with art and entertainment for all ages. One of the things that impressed me most was the cultural campus for children, with programs for art and music in the form of summer camps, infusing art and music (and the importance of it) at a young age.
