In Movies & TV

Miss "The Ornithologist" at the Milwaukee Film Festival? Lucky you; it's available on Netflix now.

Where to watch 2017 Milwaukee Film Festival movies now

The 2017 Milwaukee Film Festival may have finished rolling its end credits last night (here's some live footage from inside the OnMilwaukee office today). Thankfully, however, most festival movies have a longer lifespan than just a few screenings during the last week of September and the first week of October. Some are in theaters (or soon to be on their way, hopefully). Others are sitting right on your laptop or TV at home, just waiting for you.

While watching these features on the big screen is always the optimal route, here are the best ways to catch up (legally; none of that illegal pirated poppycock) with some of the Milwaukee Film Festival movies you may have missed these past two weeks.
