1st Annual Derby City Film Festival @ The Louisville Memorial Auditorium – 10/6-12

2008 marks the inaugural year of the Derby City Film Festival. While screenings of films produced throughout Kentucky and made by people from or associated with Kentucky and the region will be the primary focus, the festival will include quality films from other parts of the country as well.

With a premier Downtown venue to host the screenings, an abundance of after hours clubs and nightlife, as well shopping and cultural things to do, The Derby City Film Festival will hopefully become a festival destination during the fall of each year.

They are planning numerous feature film screenings as well as shorts, a few of which will be world premieres, as well as other activities, speakers and events that will no doubt generate a variety of local and national interest.
