Screening by Annabelle Attanasio Tonight at the Milwaukee Film Festival

We’re in the midst of the 7th Annual Milwaukee Film Festival, presented by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which includes  341 screenings during its 15-day run. Tonight, one of those screenings is of the film, “One Man’s Trash,” directed by Annabelle Attanasio, the niece of Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio.

“One Man’s Trash” is a video short about a man on a mission to compost a bag of spoiled produce at the Brooklyn Grange. however, when he gets to Greenpoint, the hipsters won’t let him pass. The project was funded by NYU Green Grants. It will be screened tonight at 7pm CT at the Fox Bay Cinema Grill as part of “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story.”

Annabelle is a filmmaker from Brooklyn, NY, the founder of Alacrity Productions. She is also an actress, with roles on television shows such as “The Knick,” “The Slap,” and “House M.D.” Her upcoming film “Drooler” will also be released this year.

This is not the first time an Attanasio has had an event at the Milwaukee Film Festival. In 2013, the Milwaukee Film Festival hosted “An Evening with Paul Attanasio.” Paul, Mark’s brother and Annabelle’s father, is an award-winning Hollywood writer/producer. He has worked on projects like “Quiz Show,” “Donnie Brasco” and “House M.D.”  Paul also returned to the festival this year to conduct a master class for screenwriters and students.

Before her screening tonight, Annabelle Attanasio is taking in the Brewers vs. Cubs finale with her aunt and uncle.

We highly encourage you to check out Annabelle’s film tonight and to visit the Milwaukee Film Festival in general through the end of its 2015 run on Thursday.

In keeping with their mission to positively impact the lives of children and families, the Brewers Community Foundation (BCF), along with Mark and Debbie Attanasio,” are also once again a big part of this amazing event. BCF is the Presenting Sponsor of the Milwaukee Film Festival’s Education Screenings program, which admits over 8,000 students from 1st through 12th grades for grade-appropriate screenings of festival films.
