Tonight, November 6, 2014, is the opening of the 5th Annual Driftless Film Festival.
“Life Itself,” a documentary about renowned film critic Roger Ebert who died in 2013, kicks off the fest. Here’s a link to the trailer.
“Life Itself” will be preceded by “At Home In The Shop,” an 11-minute short about Wisconsin woodworker Edward Wohl.
There will be an after-party at the Gray Dog Deli. Shannon Williams and Rubilly Wilson will be playing a low-key set from 9-11 p.m. allowing everyone to chat about this exciting film-packed weekend.
If you plan to attend any part of the Driftless Film Fest, be sure to pick up a brochure, designed by Webbs at Work. Just look for the cool movie-cow with a star on the Driftless-area of his WI shaped spot. Inside you’ll find a schedule and a concise description for each film. Bill Webb is also the guy behind the DFF website. Check it out, here.

An aside – how do you make the names of places turn blue so people can click on them, and you don’t have to show the website?? Thanks.
Sandee – thanks for the comment. We just saw it. I am happy to help you out with links. If you stop in the candy store I can give you a quick tutorial. Lisa
