Hi all, Quaid here. If you live in Louisville (I know a few of you do) and you haven’t picked up this week’s LEO, you might not know that a kickass film festival is happening this weekend right in your backyard.
It’s the Flyover Film Festival, the second annual festival sponsored by the Louisville Film Society and the Kentucky Center for the arts. We’re talking premiere indie films (with stars and…gasp!…budgets!) with director Q&As, panels and parties and all the general debauchery a film festival is supposed to have.
The event takes place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and tickets are selling out fast. So head downtown (yes, even you east-end snobby folk….just kidding) and check it out.
If you happen to be in the neighborhood on Saturday, you can even see yours truly speaking on a panel entitled “The Power of the Pen: The role of the film critic in the contemporary film industry.” I’ll be peddling books and talking about the soul of cinema’s cultural relevance or some such junk. That happens at 2:15.
