The MLC Awards
is an international film festival with a once a year gala and quarterly by-invitation live screenings.
Formerly for years in the Central Wisconsin communities (created by SPPC founder, actor and international voiceover artist Freddy Moyano), our festival recognizes cast as separate categories, as well as crew and work put into union/non union short films (20 minute maximum length), web series / pilot-episodes (with a 30-45 minute maximum length) WI or Midwest shorts and full feature Westerns (under 125 min with credits).
Productions screen quarterly in front of a private live panel of judges in the Central Wisconsin area.
Each production (all genres okay with priority to noir, latino and comedy) must showcase at least one or more of the following three components and meet the production date requirements:

M - obster
