(Milwaukee) When the Milwaukee Short Film Festival restructured three years ago, one of the first changes was to honor those who make a difference in the Wisconsin and local film-making communities. So the Pace-setter award was born.
This will be the first year that we honor another film festival in Wisconsin, The Wildwood Film Festival located in Appleton Wisconsin. One that celebrates only Wisconsin talent. Whether it's the primary creative personnel (producer/director/writer), the actors or even the locations, all projects featured have direct ties to the state. That was their mission statement over ten years ago when they started the festival, and it remains so to this day.
The founders and operators of the Wildwood Film Festival are Craig A Knitt, Jason Buss and Thomas Thorne. They will be honored on the opening night of the 13th Annual Milwaukee Short Film Festival on November 4th. We will also screen two films from Craig A Knitt as well, Hitchhiker's Trade and Spring Loaded.
