The Flyway Film Festival was founded by Rick Vaicius in 2008 on the beautiful shores of Lake Pepin in southwestern Wisconsin. The Sixth Annual Flyway Film Festival will take place October 17-20, 2013 in the adjoining towns of Pepin & Stockholm, Wisconsin.
Each year our festival typically features over 50 films, dozens of visiting filmmakers, panel discussions and workshops, and a Thursday night Kickoff Gala with food, filmmakers and live music. All this in an intimate and interactive environment along the banks of the Mississippi River.
A highlight of the Flyway Film Festival is the opening night awards ceremony in which the talented recipients receive the Flyway Ax, a stone sculpture designed by nationally recognized local artist David Culver.
