John Axford to Participate in Milwaukee Film Festival For the Third Year in a Row

Yesterday, the Milwaukee Film Festival announced that Brewers pitcher John Axford, a 2005 graduate from Notre Dame with a BA in Film, will once again take part in the event, as he has the past two years.

Now entering it’s fifth year, this year’s event runs from Thursday, September 26 through Thursday, October 10 and features top films, panel discussions and other events, including the popular “Cinema Hooligante” program, back by popular demand for a second year—a late-night genre film series dedicated to “all the raunchy, gory, scary, fun, bizarre and possibly offensive midnight, cult and genre films you could possibly cram into one film festival program.” This year, Cinema Hooligante, will also have two 35mm, one-night only screenings: Bruce Lee’s 1973 kung-fu classic, Enter the Dragon, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, which will be presented by Axford.

Make sure to check back here, follow John on Twitter @JohnAxford and also check out the Film Festival website for updates as we get closer to the festival.
