We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.

Kpolly here. Today on Cinebuds we’ll be talking about the 2nd Annual Minority Health Film Festival, which starts this Thursday, Sept. 10.

The response to this festival last year from the community was overwhelming, so Milwaukee Film decided it needed to return. But, they also have another two-week festival a month later?! Yeah, so? What else is there to do? Why not?!

Last year’s Minority Health Film Festival |

The Minority Health Film Festival (MHFF) uses film to spark conversation and create critical dialogue around well-being. By connecting film with personal health experiences, the MHFF confronts stigmas and removes barriers limiting wellness discussions—ultimately helping our community address health disparities in minority communities.

The films are serious and important, and sometimes heart-breaking. But, just as much, they are inspiring and hopeful and a real call-to-arms for our community. And they’re just really, really good films!

You can find out more about the films, events and a DRIVE-IN? — yep! — at! Passes on sale now. Individual tickets on sale starting Sept. 10.
