Milwaukee Film Fest A Two Screen Experience

The Milwaukee Film Festival is taking place on more than just the big screen. Here are the available social media account of each film and filmmaker at fest.

The Milwaukee Film Festival is a two screen experience.

The movies themselves play at their scheduled times at the various venues.

But while waiting in line, in the theater or after returning home it is possible to connect with the filmmakers on social media, notably Twitter and Facebook or to post comments on their websites where available.

Below find a thorough and mostly complete listing of available social media accounts related to films showing during the festival. Titles are hyperlinked to official websites, followed by hyperlinks to Twitter.

Sometimes the social media account is for the film, sometimes it is the personal or corporate account of the filmmaker or actor.

But follow them and they will likely follow you, especially when their film is in the local spotlight. They surely welcome the feedback.

Many of international films do not have  accounts and some that do are in the language of the country of origin. Films include:
