Milwaukee Film launches "Winter Edition" of festival

Just in time to rid those winter blues, Milwaukee Film introduces a winter version of its fall festival.

"Milwaukee Film Festival -- Winter Edition" will be miniature version of the larger fest with nine films shown during the week of March 12-18 at Marcus North Shore Theaters, 17000 N. Port Washington Rd.

In a press release, Jonathan Jackson, executive director of Milwaukee Film said, "The films in this series are all screening around the country to critical and audience acclaim, yet were not going to screen in Milwaukee. We're absolutely thrilled to be able to share them, which was only made possible through our partnership with Marcus Theatres."

Included in the winter festival, "Collapse" is a drama focused on radical thinker Michael Ruppert and directed by Milwaukee filmmaker Chris Smith of "American Movie" fame.

Other featured films include "Fish Tank," "The Maid," "Mine" and "Red Cliff."

Tickets for the winter festival are $10 each and will be available for purchase, along with film schedule and screening times, starting Friday, Feb. 12 on Milwaukee Film's website,

I highly doubt Cage's performance in this can touch the movie magic he created in 2005's "The Wicker Man". It's a comedy classic.
