Milwaukee, Wisconsin July 17 - 19, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have rescheduled the Milwaukee 48HFP from the original June dates to July 17 - 19, 2020.

We have made a commitment to protect the health of our filmmakers and the general public by deciding to reschedule our events to help prevent any further outbreak of the virus.
