Plans Underway For 2012 Derby City Film Festival

The Derby City Film Festival has begun accepting submissions for its fourth annual edition. The festival will be held February 17 through 19 at the Clifton Center. Director Kristopher Rommel says the festival has grown quickly since its launch in 2008. More than one thousand people attended last year’s event, which included screenings of more than 60 independentfilms. "We’ve gotten a lot more submissions, not only nationwide, but we’ve gotten a lot of international submissions, and the last two years we’ve gotten a lot more Kentucky and regional submissions which is really good, the quality of the films is increasing year after year," he said. The deadline for submissions to this year’s festival is December 1. The selected films will be announced a month later.
