6th Annual Milwaukee Film Festival puts spotlight on Milwaukee THE 6TH ANNUAL Milwaukee Film Festival, presented by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, puts Milwaukee in the international spotlight Sept. 25-Oct. 9. The festival takes place in venues that include the metro area's most historic movie theaters. Movies will be screened at Times Cinema, Landmark Oriental Theatre, Landmark Downer Theatre and the Fox Bay Cinema Grill. Passes and ticket 6-Packs to the 2014 Milwaukee Film Festival are on sale now. Tickets for individual screenings go on sale when the festival box office opens (Sept. 10 for Milwaukee Film Members, Sept. 11 for general public). For 2014, the festival launches a new film program: Film Feast. In its inaugural year, Film Feast presents a diverse lineup of features, eight in total, comprised of both fiction and documentary films that explore and celebrate the culture of food and drink. Another highlight is the festival's music documentary program, Sound Vision. Now in its third year, Sound Vision features eight outstanding and wide-ranging music documentaries complimented by Soundtrack, a live music series that takes place throughout the festival at The Hotel Foster. Mexico is the spotlight country for the festival's fourth annual Passport program. After successfully traversing India, China and Germany, Milwaukee Film takes the festival audience to Mexico. Featuring a selection of eight films set in Mexico (with seven of the eight made by Mexican filmmakers), Passport: Mexico includes an eclectic mix of award-winning films ranging from comedies and hard hitting dramas to revealing documentaries and poignant coming-of-age tales. Film buffs of all ages are part of the programming with the festival's Rated K: For Kids program. Presented by Mary and Ted Kellner, Rated K: For Kids offers a selection of award-winning features and shorts from around the world – ideal for ages 3 to 12 but equally enjoyable for all ages. This is just a sampling of what the festival has on tap. Visit for updates and information on the film festival and schedule.
