River's Edge International Film Festival


The River's Edge International Film Festival begins this Thursday and continues through Sunday in downtown Paducah. In it's 11th year, the festival brings David Wilson from the City of Bradford (UK), a UNESCO City of Film, to the UNESCO city of Crafts & Folk Art. On Sounds Good, Tracy Ross speaks with Landee Bryant-Greene of Maiden Alley Cinema about the festival.


Hank Cochran was a prolific songwriter, penning hits recorded by artists ranging from Patsy Cline and Burl Ives to Natalie Cole. But Cochran more than just the songs he wrote. And that’s what producer Greg Welsch and director Wesley Pryor want to show in their documentary “Livin’ For a Song” showing this weekend at the River’s Edge International Film Festival in Paducah. The documentary show times are 3 p.m. Friday at the Maiden Alley Cinema and 1 p.m. Saturday at the Market House Studio Theatre.

Good morning, I’m Todd Hatton.  It’s Sunday, October 21st.  This past week, WKMS News brought you the latest in our series of live candidate forums focusing on Kentucky’s 3rd District State House race.  Democratic candidate Gerald Watkins and Republican Jason Crockett discussed their respective approaches to dealing with the issues facing both the district and the Commonwealth at large.  And in case you missed it Friday, we’re bringing you a re-broadcast of the forum on today’s program.  Also, Kate Lochte speaks with one of the team who crafted Woodford Reserve and Angel’s Envy Bourbon, Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson.  Henderson is the featured guest at this year’s upcoming Distiller’s Dinner at the Carson Center in Paducah.  We’ll also hear about the endangered Kentucky barber shop as well as the Purchase birthplace of a Southern pastry icon.


The River’s Edge International Film Festival starts November 1 in Paducah. Now in its eighth year, the festival has worked to develop what the official website calls dedication “to the serious film maker, the serious film lover, and the art of the cinema.” The four-day event offers short and feature length films of all varieties.
