The fifth annual Milwaukee Film Festival will take place Sept. 26-Oct. 10, 2013, it was announced today.

This year's call for entries, announcements of venues and ticket pre-sale dates will be announced in the upcoming months.

The 15-day schedule is due to the positive response to the film festival's longer duration in 2012, says Artistic and Executive Director Jonathan Jackson.

"Last year we took a gamble and extended the festival from 11 to 15 days. Milwaukee did us proud and came out strong for the entire run, including 19 sell-outs in those extra four days. We couldn't be happier to announce that we'll be back for a full 15 days again in 2013."
