Have your BEST FEST

What you should, and shouldn’t, do to make the most of your film fes­ti­val ex­pe­ri­ence.

Milwaukee Magazine - - HOME & DESIGN -


be afraid to take a chance on some­thing you wouldn’t nor­mally see. Ex­pand­ing your hori­zons is

part of the ex­pe­ri­ence.


use the handy guide from MFF (it groups the films into cat­e­gories like “Cream City Cinema” and “Black Lens”) to make your picks.


talk dur­ing the films them­selves. No one’s in­ter­ested in your color com­men­tary, witty as it may be.


par­tic­i­pate in at least one of the many talk­backs and Q&A ses­sions. You’ll prob­a­bly learn some­thing, and might chat up a fu­ture star.


show up late, even if you al­ready

have a ticket. Fif­teen min­utes be­fore each show, open seats are of­fered up to the hordes out­side.


buy your tick­ets ahead of time. Last year, more than 100

screen­ings sold out.
