For the 12th straight year, the Milwaukee Italian Film Festival returns, bringing a slew of great films – most of which wouldn't likely otherwise screen in Brew City – and, as always, it's free and open to all. This year's event, slated for April 27-29 at UW-Milwaukee's Union Cinema and co-sponsored by the Department of French, Italian and Comparative Literature at UWM, takes inspiration from the Italian Ministries of Culture and Agriculture declaration of 2018 as the "Year of Italian Food."

Two of the eight films celebrate Italian wine and cuisine. Those films are "The Last Prosecco" and "Cucinì" – which makes its U.S. premiere – respectively.
