Flyover Film Festival: Mapother to Moderate

As you loyal readers know, Mama has a minor celeb-u-crush on local boy William Mapother (aka. LOST's Ethan Rohm).  Too bad I won't be in town next weekend when he comes back home to attend the 2nd Annual Flyover Film Festival sponsored by the Louisville Film Society. I've been seeing a lot of posters for this event around town, but alas I'm not on their mailing list.  (Hook a sister up, LFS-- I'd love to get press releases!)

According to Mapother's blog:

This year the festival a terrific line-up of films and panels (I'm moderating one on film finance Saturday at 12pm).  We're offering a Youth Media Summit, so local colleges can show off their film and media depts to local high students, and we're giving a Lifetime Achievement Award to acclaimed Kentucky-born director Allison Anders
Finally, we're hosting a special screening of Sundance winner Winter's Bone, starring Louisville's own fast-rising star Jennifer Lawrence.  Also, she and I will be holding a Youth Acting panel at 10:30 Sunday morning.  It's open to the public.
What are the odds people don't pelt Mapother with LOST finale questions?  I might!
