Inspiring Kids with Film

Here at Milwaukee Film, we believe the children are our future. Through a variety of initiatives—including our wildly popular Education Screenings—our Youth Education programs work to improve students' media literacy and provide school-age youth with an opportunity to participate in the film festival experience. Those efforts have included:

  • Education Screenings, in which students attend a Milwaukee Film Festival screening and participate in activities or discussions related to the film
  • Reel Talks, where industry professionals visit your classroom and engage students in conversations about the power of film or filmmaking as a career
  • On-site workshops (past program), where students learned filmmaking skills such as camera operation or editing by creating a PSA video or a music video
  • Hands-on filmmaking experiences (past program), where students worked side-by-side with film professionals to better understand the filmmaking process and create short films
