Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance To Launch On November 9
By Livia Peterson
The Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance (MFA) will officially launch at the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) during Thursday, November 9, 2017 evening. The MFA provides advocacy, networking, funding, education, exposure, and more and includes directors, sound designers, arts administrators, exhibitors, musicians, animators, patrons, writers, educators, film programmers, hair and makeup artists, photographers, gaffers, editors, producers, archivists, and camera operators.
The MFA director is Suzanne Jurva and the executive committee includes many Milwaukee based filmmakers including Susan Kerns (“Manlife”) and Erik Ljung (“The Blood is at the Doorstep”) to name a few. The founding membership is $50+, founding patron is $500+, and founding donor is $1,000+.
The Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance is one of the many components to cultivate and sustain the flourishing film culture. The annual Milwaukee Film Festival is a major component, but as the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child and in this case, to produce motion pictures.
