2018 Festival Updates

Submissions for the 2018 Milwaukee Underground Film Festival are officially closed and our programming committee is hard at work screening and reviewing all films submitted. MUFF received over 350 films this year, resulting in 62 hours of footage to watch.

As we get closer to the date of the festival, we’re only getting busier! There’s a lot of work that goes into running a festival, and it requires a lot of money, too. You can help by donating to our IndieGoGo campaign. If you’re unable to donate, consider sharing the link to help spread the word about MUFF.

Last but not least, don’t forget to mark your calendars! The 2018 Milwaukee Underground Film Festival will take place from April 19th through the 22nd; more information regarding times and locations coming soon.
