Microlights is pop-up cinema based in Milwaukee specializing in the presentation of contemporary film and video art. Since 2013 Microlights has hosted a diverse range of film/video artists in Milwaukee.
Microlights is one of many small cinemas across the country that platform independent film and video artists. Our vision is on the pursuit of critical and non-conventional modes of the moving image arts. What Microlights offers our community is a space to seek out movies that are made with artistic intention and that provide critical and socially productive insight into our contemporary media ecology. This project was founded in 2013 by Ben Balcom and Josh Weissbach. Microlights continues to be programmed collaboratively by Ben Balcom and Jesse McLean.
