‘One Hour Fantasy Girl’
The Vernon Club (Fri.): $5; 8 p.m.
Comedy Caravan (Sat.): $5; noon
Add another nickel to Louisville’s film jar. Trinity alumnus John Paul Rice comes home to exclusively share his critically lauded, inaugural indie feature film “One Hour Fantasy Girl” — and has made quite an event of it. Inspired by the true story of “a girl on Craigslist who acts out any fantasy a guy wants for $150 an hour as long as there is no sex or nudity, and it is 100 percent legal,” the film is described as a thought-provoking, unusual coming-of-age story. The Derby City Film Festival hosts the Friday night showing at The Vernon Club (1575 Story Ave.), which includes a Q&A as well as the opportunity for local talent to meet with the filmmakers for work on their next project. Saturday’s event happens at Comedy Caravan (1250 Bardstown Road) and features a two-hour screenwriting workshop with Rice and writer Edgar Michael Bravo before the film. —Michael Powell
