About the Flyway Film Festival
Flyway sprang from the monthly film programming and semi-annual filmmaker events curated by Rick Vaicius at the Lake Pepin Art & Design Center in Pepin, Wisconsin in 2006.
Over the past four years, Flyway has brought over 120 filmmakers and film professionals into the local community. In addition to screening their remarkable films, it has become a unique venue for these filmmakers to network and discuss projects and the “state of the industry” in the film world.
Past Flyway guests of honor have included award-winning producer Ted Hope (Super, American Splendor), Brian Newman, SpringBoardMedia and former CEO of the Tribeca Film Festival; director/author Kelley Baker, (Birddog, “The Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide: Making the Extreme No Budget Film”); and director/author Jon Reiss (Bomb It, “Think Outside the Box Office”).
