The Ninth Annual Flyway Film Festival will take place October 19-23, 2016 in Pepin, Stockholm, and Alma, Wisconsin, with events in Red Wing, Minnesota; showcasing top-notch emerging filmmakers from across the globe. The Flyway Film Festival was founded by Rick Vaicius in 2008 on the beautiful shores of Lake Pepin on the Mississippi River.
The annual Flyway Kickoff Gala has become one of the area’s favorite festivities, featuring gourmet hors d’oeuvres, wine, entertaining speakers, the awards ceremony for best films and honorees, and live music. This year’s event will begin at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, October 19th at the Villa Bellezza Winery in Pepin, Wisconsin. Tickets are $40 and are available on the Flyway website.
More than forty documentaries, narratives and short films will screen at four locations along the Mississippi River: the Villa Bellezza Winery in Pepin, WI; Big River Theatre in Alma, WI; WideSpot Performing Arts Center in Stockholm, WI; and the Sheldon Theatre in Red Wing, MN.
