Flyover Film Festival Announces 2023 Selections

Lineup includes documentary by Louisville native and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 13, 2023) — The Louisville Film Society released the lineup of selections for the 13th annual Flyover Film Festival, which features screenings, parties and filmmaker Q&A’s. The festival will run from July 27-30, with all films playing at the Speed Cinema.

This year’s lineup includes narrative and documentary features, as well as two shorts programs, a filmmaker panel, and multiple parties at local venues. Nearly all of the screenings will be followed by discussions with the filmmakers. All of the films are making their Kentucky big-screen premieres.

Highlights include the Appachlian documentary King Coal, directed by Oscar-nominated director Elaine McMillion Sheldon which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to great acclaim; Bread & Roses, which documents the harrowing plight of women in Afghanistan, directed by Sahra Mani and produced by Louisville native and two-time Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence; POOF, a comedic short written & directed by Louisville native Margaret Miller which also premiered at Cannes; and Fleeting Reality, the latest film from local filmmaker Richard Van Kleeck which celebrates the renowned multiple Pulitzer Prize winning photographers of the Louisville Courier-Journal.

LFS board chair Stu Pollard said: “We’re all very excited by the films and filmmakers coming to town for Flyover ‘23. To have films with Kentucky ties that have premiered at Cannes and Sundance is an incredible opportunity.”

Tickets to all screenings are $8 for Louisville Film Society and Speed members, $12 for general admission. The filmmaker panel will be free of charge and first come first served. There will be a cash bar in the Speed Cinema lobby. The complete listing of films as well as tickets sales can be found online via the Louisville Film Society’s website or the Speed Cinema’s website. Due to construction around the Speed Art Museum, please enter and exit through the museum’s main entrance.
