Thirty-six films will make their Kentucky premieres in the Louisville Film Society’s fourth annual Flyover Film Festival June 7-10. The films range from a concert feature on Louisville rockers My Morning Jacket to a dark comedy by provocative Comedy Central stars Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.
The festival will feature a special early screening on May 29 of “The Artist is Present,” an award-winning documentary on acclaimed performance artist Marina Abramovic presented in partnership with 21C Museum. Abramovic and co-director and producer Jeff Dupre, a Louisville native, will appear at the screening in the Kentucky Center’s Bomhard Theatre at 6:30 p.m.
