2014 Milwaukee Film Festival Opening Night.

MILWAUKEE – Tuesday, September 6, 2016 – The 8th Annual Milwaukee Film Festival, presented by Associated Bank, announces the opening of its Festival Box Office this Thursday. Beginning on September 8, the general public may purchase tickets to individual films online, in person at the Landmark Oriental Theatre Box Office, and by phone. Milwaukee Film Members can access the box office one day earlier, on September 7.

Last year’s Milwaukee Film Festival experienced a record 77 sold-out screenings. Anticipating even larger crowds, Milwaukee Film highly encourages festivalgoers to purchase tickets well in advance and for ticketholders to arrive 30 minutes prior to showtime to guarantee seating. Beginning 15 minutes before each film, empty seats will be sold to patrons in the rush ticket line. Rush tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Today is the last day to save up to 15% on discounted Festival Passes and ticket 6-Packs for the 2016 Milwaukee Film Festival. For a complete list of prices, visit mkefilm.org/tickets.

Tickets for the Opening Night Party will also be available for purchase on Thursday, though admission is complimentary for passholders and patrons with a ticket to the Opening Night Film, Life, Animated. The party will feature food, music, drinks, and dancing. Musical act New Age Narcissism (The Milwaukee Music Video Show, MFF2016) will perform at 9:30 PM.
