The 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival dates are recently announced, hosted by the nonprofit organization Milwaukee Film. The fifteen day festival, presented by the Associated Bank will commence on Thursday, October 17, 2019 and conclude on Thursday, October 31, 2019, including feature films, short films, education screenings, panels, and parties. As the Milwaukee Film Festival is one of ten largest festivals in the United States, over three hundred films were screened and welcomed nearly 800,000 attendees in 2018.

Jonathan Jackson, Milwaukee Film’s CEO and Artistic Director stated in a press release, “Last year’s move to later fall dates proved successful, and we are excited to remain at the end of October. Bringing the best of independent cinema to Milwaukee audiences has been a goal since day one and the shift in dates allowed us the opportunity to secure major titles that are now in awards season conversations. We look forward to discovering the best new films and presenting them to our audiences at our festival's eleventh edition.”

As the dates are announced, it is time for the Call for Entries as well. All genres, lengths, and the like will be considered. The deadline is Monday, July 1, 2019. The questions, regarding submissions may be directed to entry@mkefilm.org.
