The University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee’s film program has been teaching students the ins and outs of filmmaking since the late 1970’s. We spoke with department chair         Rob Yeo and professor Dick Blau about how they helped start the program and it’s impact on the community.

The UWM Fine Art Film program is recognized around the country and the rest of the city benefits by being exposed to a wide variety of films through events like the Milwaukee Film Festival.

Listen below to hear how the program got started and why it continues to thrive.
