The Milwaukee UNDERGROUND Film Festival is a student run film festival devoted to showcasing independent, artist driven cinema. For 20 years 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.
We're looking for underground, unique, independent, artist-made, subversive, weird, strange, avant-garde, experimental, non-traditional films and videos! No normie stuff! Keep it weird, people.
What we're looking for:
1. We're looking for underground, unique, independent, artist-made, subversive, weird, strange, avant-garde, experimental, non-traditional films and videos!
2. This festival focuses on short films, 20 minutes or less.
3. The form is up to you: we'll watch and show any type of moving image project: narrative, documentary, experimental, animation, music video, essay, new media.
