Milwaukee Film Festival might be over, but that doesn’t mean Milwaukee should stop celebrating and experiencing compelling feature films and shorts. On top of Milwaukee Film’s “Best Of The Fest” screenings at The Oriental Theatre (editor’s note: see Parasite immediately), one-off screenings of classic cinema at a variety of theaters in the region, and first-run flicks everywhere, you might be thrilled to learn there’s another film festival happening in town this fall.
Over the course of its first three installments, Film Girl Film Festival has worked hard to provide a platform for “a society of women who shape the world with their imagination.” The ambitious festival was founded by local film critic Andrea Thompson, who has willed the independent affair to grow considerably since its inception.
The fourth installment will take place at The Underground Collaborative over the course of three days. November 8-10, Film Girl Film Festival will screen a wide range of features and shorts. There will also be an opening night party at No Studios. If you’re still looking to get your film fix, check out the full lineup below. Tickets to individual screenings and events can be purchased here.
