Flyway Film Festival Oct 19-21st

The Eleventh Annual Flyway Film Festival will take place October 19-21, 2018 in Pepin, Stockholm, and Alma, Wisconsin.

The festival venues are on the shores of Lake Pepin, a part of the Mississippi that widens to a 40-square-mile “lake” sixty miles downstream from the Twin Cities. The area is known for its scenic river bluffs as well as for its vibrant arts scene, gourmet dining, and sailing.

Full festival passes for unlimited screenings and parties are available now through October 1st for $120. Six-ticket “binge passes” are $65. Tickets for individual films ($12, or $8 with a student discount) will be available on October 3rd, as well as tickets for the opening night party.

Note: Dogs must be leashed and under owner control at all times. Attendees who plan to bring their canine companions must sign a Waver of Liability and Release, found at http://dogdaysofstockholm.org/
