      In 2013, the Milwaukee Film Festival was proud to pay tribute to acclaimed writer/producer Paul Attanasio. Over his 25 years in the business he has been nominated for (or won) every major award, including the Academy Award, the BAFTA, the Writers’ Guild of America Award, the Emmy, the Peabody Award, and the Golden Globe. Attanasio is the creator of the award-winning Baltimore-based cop drama HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET, based on a book by THE WIRE creator David Simon. Just a year after HOMICIDE’s debut, his script for the Robert Redford-directed QUIZ SHOW starring Ralph Fiennes was nominated for an Oscar. Since then, his film work has included scripts for DISCLOSURE, DONNIE BRASCO, SPHERE, THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, and THE GOOD GERMAN. In television, Attanasio followed his initial success with an even bigger one, as executive producer of the world’s most watched television show (82 million viewers), HOUSE M.D. On Saturday, October 5, Paul Attanasio sat with Milwaukee Film's Artistic & Executive Director Jonathan Jackson at the Oriental Theatre to discuss his career, explore clips from his work, discuss his influences, and talk about Attanasio’s thoughts on the evolution of writing for TV and film today and how the forms are more similar than ever before.

                In 2013, the Milwaukee Film Festival was proud to pay tribute to acclaimed writer/producer/director George Tillman Jr. Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI (where he attended John Marshall High School), Tillman directed his first feature film, SCENES FOR THE SOUL, in 1991. But it was his follow-up-- SOUL FOOD-- that made him a household name. From there, Tillman went on to direct MEN OF HONOR (starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Robert De Niro), then shifted gears to become executive producer of SOUL FOOD: THE SERIES for Showtime, and co-producer of BARBERSHOP (the most profitable African-American-themed film of all time), BARBERSHOP 2: BACK IN BUSINESS, BEAUTY SHOP, and the 1970s-inspired ROLL BOUNCE. After nearly a decade away, Tillman returned to directing with NOTORIOUS, the edgy biopic of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G., followed by the action film FASTER, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton. On Saturday, September 28, George Tillman Jr. took the stage at the Oriental Theatre for a one-night-only screening of his latest film, THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER AND PETE. Joined by the film's writer, fellow Milwaukee native Michael Starrbury, as well as the young stars of the film (Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon), Tillman stood before a sold-out Milwaukee Festival crowd, screened his film, took part in an audience Q+A, and accepted a mayoral proclamation declaring September 28 "George Tillman Jr. Day."

                  The U.S Premiere of Alex Gibney's documentary MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD at the Landmark Oriental Theatre on October 5th during the 2012 Milwaukee Film Festival. Gibney exposes the abuse of power in the Catholic Church and a coverup that winds its way from our hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, through the bare ruined choirs of Ireland's churches, all the way to the highest office of the Vatican. By investigating the secret crimes of a charismatic priest who abused over 200 deaf children in a school under his control - St. John's School for the Deaf in St. Francis - the film shows the face of evil that lurks behind the smiles and denials of authority figures and institutions who believe that, because they stand for good, they can do no wrong. The film documents the first known public protest against clerical sex abuse in our country - long before the crisis in Boston a struggle of more than three decades that ultimately led to a lawsuit against the Pontiff himself. These heroes, four deaf young men, set out to expose the priest who had abused them and so many others by trying to make their voices heard. Their investigation helped to uncover documents from the secret Vatican Archives that show the Pope - who must operate within the mysterious rules of the Roman Curia - as both responsible and helpless in the face of evil. MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD makes its television debut on February 4th on HBO, and was produced by Jigsaw Productions in association with Wider Film Projects and Below the Radar Films. Video shot and edited by Milwaukee filmmakers Matthew Mixon and Gino Gaglianello
