In 2011, the first River City Festival of Films was held in an empty unit at Towne Square Mall and proved to be enough of a success that we now have a third one.

On March 1st, the Owensboro Convention Center will play host to the festival which will showcase the work of local and regional filmmakers, whom festival attendees will get to meet.

While all festival events continue to be free and open to the public, donations WILL be accepted for New Beginnings Sexual Assault Services.

This year, the River City Festival of Films will feature three guest speakers:

Sir Mo

Former WWE star and one half of the championship tag team, Mo and Mabel.

Dave Shuffett

Host of the popular KET series Kentucky Life and Kentucky Collectibles. He will also conduct a seminar on television production and discuss his new book My Kentucky Life.


And then special celebrity guest...


Peter Weller

The world-renowned actor and star of Robocop, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Sons of Anarchy, among many others, will be on hand to screen the cult classic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. In a special seminar, Weller and Owensboro native Jason Koger will discuss their experiences working together on the CBS hit crime drama Hawaii 5-0. There will also be an autograph and photo session.

Mark your calendars for the third River City Festival of Films, March 1st at the Owensboro Convention Center.
