Flyway Film Fest Dispatch #1: Director Rick Vaicius



We’re back in Pepin, Wisconsin once again for the third annual Flyway Film Festival and Gamble and Andrew are here for more “pubcasting” with various film fans and film makers over this amazingly fun weekend with all sorts of fantastic independent film.

Rick Vaicius is the festival director and chief programmer and was not only gracious enough to sit down with us for a few minutes to talk about the festival, but really the most gracious of hosts to all of his guests (including us bloggers) for the entire weekend. This is a festival that relies mainly on the fun factor and Rick makes absolutely certain that everyone who comes into town for the big show has an excess of enjoyment, hospitality and most importantly a good time!

As a quick side note, Matt and I would like to give a huge shout out to the Breakwater Gallery & Wine Bar (Google) for graciously allowing all of the filmmakers to use the lounge as a weekend long retreat for these interviews, maybe a few beers as well as the occasional nap in their comfy armchairs. Not to mention the use of their wi-fi for uploading all of these mini-podcasts that will be posted over the next few days both here and at

Thanks to everyone involved with putting this amazing little festival together and allowing us to crash it!
