Milwaukee Film Festival gets donation


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- It's a big boost for fans of the Milwaukee Film Festival. Baseball Commission Bud Selig and his wife are donating more money to help the event out.

The Milwaukee native has committed to give the festival $400,000 over the next three years. He and his wife Suzanne already gave the festival $100,000 for each of the 2009 and 2010 festivals.

Last year's festival attendance was up 50 percent over 2009, with 30,000 tickets sold. The festival this year will be held Sept. 22 to Oct. 2.
