DUBUQUE, Iowa -- High and Outside, LLC announces "High & Outside : a baseball noir" film is the Closing film at the Julien International Film Festival in Dubuque, Iowa where "Field Of Dreams" was filmed. Moviemaker magazine named it "One of the 25 coolest film festivals in the World."

"High & Outside" is about a minor league baseball player, Phil Harding, who takes desperate measures to fight off the almost certain end to his dream in the big leagues, which threatens to wreck his already fragile family life. The Chicago Tribune says, "This film will stay will you forever."

The film has been nominated for Best Screenplay & Film at the prestigious Raindance Film Festival in London & Austin Film Festival and recently at Cinequest Film Festival. The opening to the film was shot at Lewis and Clark Park, home of the real life "Sioux City Explorers" of the American Association Independent Baseball league in Iowa.

It features Golden Globe nominee Geoffrey Lewis in his last starring role as Phil's domineering father, baseball legend Len Harding. Phil Donlon plays his son, Phil Harding. Joining them is Ernie Hudson (Grace & Frankie) as Phil's manager, Lindsey Haun (True Blood) as Phil's wife, Jason Richter (Free Willy) as Phil's best friend, David Yow (The Jesus Lizard) as Lewis' caregiver, Eddie Jemison (Chicago Med) as Sal, and David Proval (Everyone Loves Raymond) as Don.
