Festival Wrap-Up

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year the best Milwaukee Underground Film Festival ever! We had a really great team this year. We loved bringing the Milwaukee community together to watch some fantastic films and to experience three unique installations. As always we were able to keep our screenings free through your support. Our yearly MUFF raffle received double the amount of donations we got last year and our merch sales were through the roof! We showed over 40 films and had over 400 people in attendance! It was great to hang with so many amazing filmmakers from near and far. Our VIP Filmmakers brunch was definitely a highlight this year. We loved getting to talk with all the different artists and the community members that came out to support the Milwaukee Underground Film Festival. Company Brewing continues to be an amazing venue to show our programs. The after parties were a blast this year. Beans and Barley was amazing once again and it was awesome getting to check out Riverwest Pizza, Art Bar, and Riverwest Public House. We plan to keep working with the Riverwest community for many years to come. Keep checking out our social media for updates throughout the year. We hope to see you all again next year for an even bigger and better MUFF!
