Fishing for Film

Feb. 24, 2024

You’ve heard of the Sundance Film Festival. The Cannes Film Festival (or, more accurately, Festival de Cannes). Even the Traverse City Film Festival—RIP. But what about the International Fly Fishing Film Festival? IF4 is headed to the Vogue Theatre in Manistee in partnership with Iron Fish Distillery and the Manistee Tourism Bureau. The festival’s nine films play March 2 at 12:30pm and 3pm and then again March 3 at 11am. Organizers highlight selections like Pinawaca, “a jungle adventure led by popular angler and guide Jako Lucas in search of legendary and oversized peacock bass,” and Vivid Dreams, “a breathtaking film about a group of friends in search of oversized sea-run brown trout in rugged landscapes.” Tickets are $24. Visit voguetheatremanistee.org for tickets and flyfilmfest.com to scope out the films.
