Flyway is pleased to present a reprise of Alex Karpovsky’s 2008 mockumentary, which screened during the inaugural Flyway Film Festival eleven years ago. In this tragicomic blend of fact and fiction, fanatical birdwatchers have descended upon a small town in the Arkansas bayou in hopes of finding the extinct Ivory Billed Woodpecker, resulting in a film that “will have you simultaneously laughing and performing mental gymnastics to unravel its many layers" (Austin Chronicle).
The Twelfth Annual Flyway Film Festival will take place October 10-13, 2019 in Pepin, Stockholm, and Alma, Wisconsin, with other locations TBD. Flyway Film Festival's mission is to bring the best in independent film to the Lake Pepin area of Wisconsin and Minnesota for the purposes 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 arts scene, gourmet dining, and sailing. The Great River Road, which runs along the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin, was named the “Prettiest Drive in America” by the Huffington Post.
