Milwaukee Film began in 2009 as a film festival that occurred for 11 days. Today, we operate 365 days a year as one of the nation’s leading nonprofit institutions dedicated to film culture.

We are committed to enriching our community through diverse film presentations, signature events, and year-round education programs for all ages. Our Annual Fund provides a platform for us to acknowledge the individuals and foundations whose incredible support empowers us to grow.
