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.

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.

Milwaukee Film Festival Unveils 2015 Sponsor Trailer Featuring Hank the Ballpark Pup

This morning, the 7th Annual Milwaukee Film Festival, presented by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, announced a collaboration with the Wisconsin Humane Society for their 2015 Festival Sponsor Trailer which will run before each of the 341 screenings of the 15-day film festival.

“This is an idea that was presented to us several years ago by local filmmaker and writer Ryan Plato. We always wanted to see it happen, and this year the partnership with the Wisconsin Humane Society and the great filmmaking team at Bunkerooney Films, Tate Bunker and Kara Mulrooney, made it possible,” explains Jonathan Jackson, Artistic and Executive Director at Milwaukee Film. “Our hope is that our film festival patrons who see dozens of festival films won’t ever get tired of these adorable animals. And even though I am a cat lover, I suppose it is acceptable that they allowed dogs in the trailer.”

The trailer highlights the film festival’s 2015 sponsors with a cast of adult dogs and cats as well as puppies and kittens, all Wisconsin Humane Society alumni or animals who were waiting to be adopted at the time of filming.

Thanks to the Brewers Community Foundation, Hank the Ballpark Pup is featured in the trailer as well. In keeping with their mission to positively impact the lives of children and families, the Brewers Community Foundation also returns as 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.

“This partnership is a great case of nonprofit collaboration in Milwaukee,” explains Angela Speed, Vice President of Communications for the Wisconsin Humane Society. “There’s such a need for good homes and loving pet owners; we’re thrilled to see the work we do get this kind of exposure.”

The Milwaukee Brewers’ lovable dog, “Hank, the Ballpark Pup,” has been nominated for “Dog of the Year” in the CW’s World Dog Awards. Hosted by George Lopez and set to air on the CW Network on January 15, 2015, the awards show puts the spotlight on man’s best friend and highlights special achievements by Hank and other canines alike.

 

Being nominated for “Dog of the Year” means Hank is one of five dogs who have made the biggest impact on pop culture in 2014. Votes will be tallied through January 9 to see which of the five dogs will be awarded the title.

 

Hank first appeared as a stray at Brewers Spring Training on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers. He became a fixture at camp and immediately captured the hearts of everyone at Maryvale Baseball Park, as well as pet lovers across the world. Stories on Hank appeared everywhere from the London Daily Mail to PEOPLE Magazine, and nearly every major national news and talk show across the United States.

 

Hank has teamed up with the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) to initiate fundraisers benefitting the efforts to feed, care for and shelter homeless animals. In addition, 20 percent of Hank merchandise sales, such as his book and other Hank collectibles, are also donated to the WHS. To date, the Brewers and Brewers Community Foundation have raised more than $150,000 through this program.

 

Hank’s rise to the pop culture limelight since first walking on the field in February has been nothing short of tremendous. He has warmed the hearts of thousands of Brewers fans and dog lovers alike and continues to make a positive impact on the Milwaukee community.

Brewers Pet Calendars Have Arrived!

If you’ll recall, earlier this season, we were working with the Brewers Wives and the Wisconsin Humane Society to create a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society. We also held a contest where one winner and her dog were selected to appear in the calendar (congrats again, Jessica!)

Well, the calendars have arrived and are now available at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.

Let me just say–they turned out great! All of the photos were taken by our team photographer, Scott Paulus.

Brewers Pet Calendar

 

This is an 18-month calendar, starting with September of 2014, which means you don’t have to wait until the New Year to display it.

PAL stands for People and Animals Learning and is a two-week summer camp for Milwaukee children, ages 10-13. The kids are paired up to train a shelter dogs over the course of the camp and take part in other confidence-building and violence prevention activities. Since the program began in 1993, there have been over 750 graduates from the program. (For more information, click here.)

At today’s graduation, the kids demonstrated their new dog-handling skills and received their diplomas.

Here are a few fun photos from the day:

Following the graduation, the Brewers contingent was given a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility by Anne Reed, President & CEO of the Wisconsin Humane Society. Here are a few more photos from that tour, including the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center:

Congratulations once again to the PAL graduates and thank you to the Wisconsin Humane Society for all of the good you do in the community!
