Discussion-Centered Film Events

Beyond the Film offers festival audiences the opportunity to dig deeper into our films and the issues brought up in them through discussion and engagement with fellow film fans, local leaders, or industry professionals.

  • Our Forums series allows the festival audience to engage further with industry professionals and community leaders through curated discussions.

  • Our Conversations program lets filmgoers get together in an informal setting to discuss what they just watched immediately following select festival screenings.

​Check back frequently for event announcements!


Following select films during each Milwaukee Film Festival, small-group facilitator-led conversations take place that continue the discussion beyond the big screen!


The Story Doesn't End When the Credits Roll...

Join us following select screenings for small group, facilitator-led conversations that take the discussion beyond the big screen.
