2020 Year-Round Reel Talks Request Form
Milwaukee Film’s Reel Talks program brings visiting and local filmmakers to high school, college, and afterschool learning spaces to inspire young people by talking informally about their work.
Year-round (non-festival) Reel Talks involve local filmmakers who live and work in our community. Each Reel Talk session (45-60mins) usually involves screening of clips from the film and an informal, facilitated discussion of the film’s content and/or the guest’s career.
Below is a list of local filmmakers (and their films) who’ve expressed interest in visiting with area youth between late February – May 2019. If you are interested in hosting a local filmmaker, please fill out the interest form by Tuesday, February 18 for our first round of visits. Or, if you’re seeing this late, we will add visits as capacity allows. If you are interested in a late spring visit but are unsure of your precise availability, that's ok, we'll work with you as your schedule becomes more clear.
Note: Visits are subject to filmmaker availability. View our full menu of offerings at this link:
