Milwaukee Film Festival begins with high anticipation

Hundreds of films from around the world are featured at this year's Milwaukee Film Festival.


276 films will show at seven different locations. Some producers, writers and actors from the films will make appearances at the festival.


Mequon native and Oscar-winning filmmaker John Ridley, who received an academy award for 12 Years A Slave, is scheduled to appear at the showing of the biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side, which he wrote and directed. 


Another big name to make an appearance is Sean Astin, who played Sam in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the title character in Rudy. He stars in the film Surface, which is premiering at the Milwaukee Film Festival. 


It's expected that more than 60,000 people will check out at least one of the films.


The 15-day festival began on September 25th and lasts until October 9th.
