Milwaukee Film Festival announces films and locations

Virtual viewing will remain an option, but this year the Milwaukee Film Festival will return to big screens across the city as the pandemic wanes. The festival will be held at three historic venues, the Oriental Theatre, the Times Cinema and the Avalon Theater, from April 21 to May 5.

“This year’s hybrid festival offers options for an all-virtual experience (using our virtual pass only) as well as in-cinema screenings of each program,” said MFF Artistic Director Cara Ogburn. “My recommendation? Mix and match, using the all-access pass available to members or creating a virtual pass with single-ticket six-packs to the movies.

Along with a new round of offerings from the film festival circuit, this year’s MFF highlights include Spike Lee’s documentary David Byrne’s American Utopia (2020) and a 35mm screening of John Carpenter’s remake of The thing (1982).
