Greetings,

It’s my pleasure to welcome all attendees who view the 2022 Louisville’s International Festival of Film. You will find Louisville to be a welcoming place, full of gorgeous views, amazing restaurants and exciting nightlife. The Louisville’s International Festival of Film is rapidly growing in reputation and prestige, and this year’s collection of films is unrivaled.

A special thanks goes to Louisville native and the man who founded the Louisville’s International Festival of Film – Conrad Bachmann. He and his son Brett and partner Brian have worked tirelessly to make this festival the best ever. They also have collected a team of sponsors and volunteers dedicated to making your production and stay a success in Louisville.

For our filmmakers, we wish you every success. Who knows? You may someday have the same success enjoyed by the star of the first Louisville’s International Festival of Film – Jennifer Lawrence. She’s also a Louisville native. Proof that Kentucky fosters creativity.

Please enjoy your the multitude of films that await you this weekend at the 2022 Louisville’s International Festival of Film.

Sincerely,
