MILWAUKEE (June 1, 2009) – The Milwaukee Film Festival has extended the submission deadline for submitting films and videos of any length to June 30, 2009.

All films/videos made in Milwaukee or by current Milwaukee filmmakers/video artists qualify for an entry fee waiver. Filmmakers just need to e-mail to receive a fee waiver code.

Short films from Milwaukee will be considered for the 2nd annual spotlight on Milwaukee filmmakers, The Milwaukee Show. Last year over 500 people attended the presentation at the Oriental Theatre. As Program Coordinator T.J. Fackelman says, “The Milwaukee Show turns the spotlight on local filmmakers for an entire evening during the Milwaukee Film Festival; and with awards valued at over $15,000 and an awesome party afterward, it’s far more than just your average film screening.”

Remember, films screening in the festival must not screen publicly in Milwaukee in the two months prior to the festival.

Filmmakers outside of Milwaukee must pay an entry fee of $40 for feature submissions and $30 for short submissions through June 30, 2009.

All filmmakers can submit their film through our website at
