Derby City Film Festival Hits in February

December 16th, 2009 by jake · No Comments

The second annual Derby City Film Festival is around the corner – February 19th through February 21st at the Clifton Center in Louisville.

The group has just announced the selection of 45 films to be screened. Judging them based on promotional posters and descriptions (because judging a book by it’s cover always makes sense, right?), everything appears to be rather exciting this year.

They come from more than a dozen countries and include six films from right here in Kentucky.

The Six Films from Kentucky:

  • Alphonso Bow, directed by Lije Sarki, written by M Sarki (Louisville film)
    February 20th @ 12:30 P.M.
  • Hip Hop: Dead or Alive, directed by Stephon Barbour (Louisville film)
    February 20th @ 8:00 P.M.
  • Blue King, directed by David & Kevin Flores (Louisville film)
    February 20th @ 10:00 P.M.
  • Cannonball, directed by Scott Stafford
    February 21st @ 1:30 P.M.
  • Sam Steel & the Junior Detective Agency, directed by Tom Whitus (Louisville film)
    February 21st @ 3:30 P.M.
  • In Mysterious Ways, directed by Vin Morreale Jr (Louisville film)
    February 21st @ 6:00 P.M.
