The Milwaukee Independent Film Society will be hosting the world premiere of “Port of Call” at the Lubar Theater at 9:15 PM on Friday, October 29th. This Wisconsin-produced film features area actors such as Rex Sikes, Jason Powell and Laura Lynn MacDonald along with additional cast and crew from the Midwest.

It was an honor to be asked by Ross to be part of the Milwaukee Independent Film Society event.

Local filmmaker Glen Popple, who has worked on other productions such as the documentary “99 Bottles” and the soon-to-premiere "Petty Cash", presents this comedy which follows the adventures of a bouncer at a pan-dimension portal in a local bar who, after coming upon the Holy Dice Cup of Antioch, struggles to return the artifact before he destroys the entire universe! "The film is considered a comedy in most of the country." states Popple, "But in Cudahy, Wisconsin, where much of the filming took place, it's a documentary".

Popple was approached by another Midwestern filmmaker of note, Ross Bigley, in regards to premiering the film at this year's MIFS event. "I was a bit concerned at first." he admitted "I'm three years older and wiser...well, older anyhow...than when we filmed that. But we had a great cast and crew working on it so we knew we had something good. It was an honor to be asked by Ross to be part of this event. We've also had a great year of working on other projects."

"There's an amazing amount of talent in the Midwest." says Popple "I'm just glad to be able to work with some of the best in the area on this film and hope to on future projects as well".
