Milwaukee Underground Film Festival
September 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - October 27, 2020 @ 9:00 pm CDT
The 2020 Milwaukee Underground Film Festival will run from September 15th-October 27th on our website! We have six programs and each program will premiere on a Tuesday night at 5pm CST with a live Q&A at 8pm CST. After the program’s premiere night, a majority of the films will remain in the showcase for one week (with filmmaker permission, of course). So, go to our site on September 15th at 5pm CST to start your six weeks of international, contemporary, artist made, short films, programmed by students from the Film Department at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee! The 2020 Festival will be a collaboration with Experimental Tuesdays at the UWM Union Cinema, a program of the Department of Film, Video, Animation and New Genres at the Peck School of the Arts, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Underground Film Festival (MUFF) is a student run film festival devoted to showcasing independent, artist driven cinema. For nearly two decades we have been programming filmmakers that defy convention in an attempt to amplify unheard voices. Our festival celebrates the potential of cinema to imbue a community with excitement, critical discussion, and open-mindedness through the presentation of new artistic forms.
