Flyway Film Festival« Back to Events
The 11th annual Flyway Film Festival is held in Pepin and Alma along Highway 35, our gorgeous Great River Road. Flyway Film Festival’s mission is to bring the best in independent film to the Lake Pepin area of Wisconsin and Minnesota for the purpose of cultural enrichment, community-building, arts education, and to inspire the next generation of filmmakers. 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 art scene, gourmet dining, and sailing. Over 50 national and international independent films will be shown across multiple venues, with many filmmakers and industry professionals in attendance to interact with audiences via Q&A and networking events. It’s three days of films, workshops, music, and parties along the beautiful bluffs of the Mississippi River.
