MILWAUKEE – Thursday, September 17, 2015 – The 7th Annual Milwaukee Film Festival, presented by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, announces today a preliminary list of guests for this year’s festival. A total of over 100 out-of-town guests are expected to attend the festival, comprising filmmakers and subjects from films in each festival program and including several guests from overseas.

“Bringing guests to the festival allows our audience to have a one-of-a-kind interaction with creators and subjects of these films. This is why film festivals are unlike any other movie-going experience,” shares Jonathan Jackson, Artistic and Executive Director at Milwaukee Film.

Featured guests this year include co-host of The View and former star of That’s So Raven and The Cosby Show,  Raven-Symoné, who is attending with her acting performance in A Girl Like Grace. Attending in person to present his acclaimed performance in Uncle John is John Ashton, who has over 70 acting credits, including supporting star turns in Gone Baby Gone, Beverly Hills Cop and Midnight Run.

Several documentary subjects who are attending are noteworthy additions to the festival line-up, including April Carrión, a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6, who is attending with the documentary Mala Mala. Moziah Bridges, a memorable young guest from Shark Tank, will be attending in conjunction with a short documentary about his eponymous company Mo’s Bows.

Acclaimed directors attending are plentiful and include 2015 Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary winner and South Milwaukee native Chad Gracia (The Russian Woodpecker) and James Redford, director of the documentary Paper Tigers, who is co-founder and chair of the Redford Center and the son of Robert Redford.

Filmmaker and Milwaukee Film Festival 2015 Tribute guest Stanley Nelson Jr. is scheduled to attend the screening of his latest film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution and participate in a question-and-answer session following the Monday, Sep. 28 screening at 6:15PM.

In addition to Nelson, the Black Lens program is strongly represented with guests from nearly every film scheduled to attend. Featured guests include directors Paul Hill and April Martin (Cincinnati Goddamn), director Malik Vitthal (Imperial Dreams), director Lacey Schwartz (Little White Lie), director Harold Jackson III (Last Night) and director/actor Ty Hodges along with producer Matt Keith and actors Garcelle Beauvais and Ryan Destiny (A Girl Like Grace).

Special to this year’s festival are international guests including Carlos Alvarez Sanchez and Armando Lorenzo Munnet Rodriguez, subjects of the Cuba-shot film Havana Motor Club; Argentinian guests Nicola Costantino and director Natalie Cristiani (Nicola Costantino: The Artefacta), Italian director Sydney Sibilia (I Can Quit Whenever I Want), Canadian director Jeffrey St. Jules (Bang Bang Baby) and the Ukrainian lead subject of the award-winning documentary The Russian Woodpecker, Fedor Alexandrovich.

Several acclaimed short-form filmmakers will also be guests of the festival, including Zach Lasry, director of the short film Seth and son of Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry, Meg Smaker, director of the acclaimed short film Boxeadora and Actor Seeks Role director Michael Tyburski.

2013 Milwaukee Film Festival Tribute recipient Paul Attanasio (screenwriter, Donnie Brasco, Quiz Show) will return to conduct a Masterclass with local screenwriters and students. Chicago Tribune film critic Michael J. Phillips is presenting the festival’s State of Cinema keynote address. Public Forums and Filmmaker Services panels will feature Prof. Ursula Lindqvist (Gustavus Adolphus College), who will speak on Swedish cinema and the Passport: Sweden program, and Emily Best, founder of the crowdfunding platform Seed & Spark, who will run workshops on funding and distribution for filmmakers.
