Scheduled from Oct. 9-11

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2014) — Dozens of international filmmakers from as far away as Germany, United Kingdom, France, Canada, China and Russia will join U.S. filmmakers from Oct. 9-11 at the 7th annual Louisville International Festival of Film.

film“This annual festival offers the community an opportunity to screen artistic films, not usually presented through commercial venues,” said actor and Louisville-native Conrad Bachman, founder of the festival. “We are proud to promote Louisville as a destination for film production drenched in hospitality, arts and culture.”

On opening night the film “Druid Peak” will be screened at Spaulding University and the film’s star Spencer Treat Clark is scheduled to be in attendance. Following the film will be an opening night gala in the school’s ballroom.

More than 150 films are scheduled to be screened during the festival. A complete schedule, as well as ticket information, is available on the festival’s website.

Proceeds from the festival go to expand educational and economic opportunities in Louisville and around the commonwealth, including funding to assist film classes at Kentucky public high schools.
