About the event
A WARM WELCOME
To our Filmmakers, Sponsors, and Friends!
As we begin the 12th year of Louisville's International Festival of Film we are in the midst of an unprecedented time in the world.
No question the virus we face has changed our lives. The way we've had to scramble to accomplish things we usually take for granted (like attending a film festival). But challenges make us all stronger and encourage us to confront obstacles and find solutions, so...
This year LIFF has gone Virtual!
Once again, you will enjoy a wonderful selection of films from the creative minds of writers, directors, and producers from around the world. Thank you for being a part of our festival this year.
Kudos to our volunteers and associates who helped create the Virtual Festival. They have worked diligently on your behalf.
A very special "Thank You" to Michelle Care Wix, who has worked tirelessly on our website and made it possible for us to screen your submissions virtually.
And LIFF is most appreciative of all of you who have supported this festival; you created the success it enjoys.
So in keeping with the situation, grab some popcorn and a cozy blanket and sit back in the comfort of your favorite armchair, and enjoy the show!
"Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.” - Ingmar Bergman
Cheers to you!

Feedback from previous years
Thank you, Conrad. I have to say of all 19 festivals I attended last year, yours was in my top 3. The good people of Louisville, your staff, and your events really left a lasting impression (amazing city). I never got a chance to thank you for all the good time and hospitality we received at last year’s festival. Thank you! Until next year, hopefully.
“The Louisville’s International Festival of Film is a terrific venue for up and coming indie filmmakers. Louisville isn’t just for bourbon, purebreds, or baseball bats anymore!
Actress / Director ”Silk”
”It was a real honor to have gained selection to this year’s LIFF”
“Thank you very much for screening our film “Das Falsche Herz” at your festival in Louisville Kentucky. Your festival will be the first to screen our film outside of its production country…you can imagine, that we feel very honored, to introduce our film to the American audience. A few days ago I had a look at the whole festival program. It’s very impressive!”
With kind regards from Austria,
“The Louisville International Festival of Film helped my no-budget Australian short film find an audience internationally – words can not describe how valuable a platform that is, and they have my unyielding support.”
“Louisville’s International Festival of Film is an exciting “Go To” festival and I enjoyed my time there. It’s one of the best for film makers from all over the world to screen their films. You’ll love it too”
“9 to 5” “Incredible Shrinking Woman” “Pink Panther 2”
“It was the best days of my life in Louisville.”
“Many thanks again for a wonderful time in Louisville. It is great festival you organized and we were honored to be a part of it, much less to receive Best Feature.
“On the Wing”
“Let me say how proud and grateful I am that my film was included and as a winner in 2015 LIFF.”
“Jes and Lora”
“Thank you very much for including ‘Our Father’ in your Festival this year and for honoring it with such a special award! So pleased that Michael Gross could be there.”
