The Milwaukee Film Festival is underway! Click here for all info on the fest. It’s all virtual this year, so no difficult schedules, no waiting in line, no uncomfortable seats! It’s the comfiest festival so far.

Here is how to fest.

Here is all the films.

And here is a list of events. Every night at 8 p.m. Milwaukee Film will be holding a get together called The Nightcap where we will all get together on our computers and check in and chat with directors, actors and maybe some other surprises too.

And every day, me and Kpolly are highlighting a movie we are watching and one that we think you would like too.

Today’s pick: Ema

Ema is reeling as her relationship falls apart in the aftermath of an adoption gone awry. Her loss is never far from her mind as her partner (Gael García Bernal) is also the choreographer of her reggaeton dance troupe. Ema deals with her grief through a series of seemingly self-destructive decisions until it’s revealed that there is a method to her madness. Ema marks Chilean director Pablo Larraín’s (“Jackie,” “Neruda”) triumphant return home.
