Our Kentucky River, directed by Herb E. Smith, follows our Commonwealth’s namesake river from its headwaters in the mountains of eastern Kentucky through the historic river town capital of Frankfort and finally to the watershed’s confluence with the mighty Ohio River at Carrollton. This 250-mile journey provides a unique look at the historical significance of the watershed and the current problems it faces, while highlighting the many roles that the river continues to play in the lives of Kentuckians as it flows across the state.
Our Kentucky River will be screened on Friday, November 6, 2015 in the National Quilt Museum Classroom at The River’s Edge International Film Festival.
The River’s Edge International Film Festival brings independent film to the smart, arts-oriented, mid-American river town of Paducah, Kentucky. Paducah already has a burgeoning visual and performing arts scene, and the film festival is right in the center of this cultural hub.
Celebrating our 11th year, the River’s Edge International Film Festival is a four day event built around the showing of quality independent film from around the world. Our focus is both on the film lover, providing multiple venues in which to experience the best the world of cinema has to offer, and on the film maker, offering opportunities for exhibition, education, and networking with contemporaries.
The River’s Edge International Film Festival is soon to be at the apex of the festival circuit. It is dedicated to the serious film maker, the serious film lover, and the art of the cinema.
