LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Indie filmmakers from all over the world are in Louisville for the International Festival of Film.

The first screening was of "Le Ride," a bicycle documentary about the Tour De France.

“Le Ride” filmmaker Phil Keoghan said, “When you first show a film it’s a combination of nerves and excitement. You put so much sweat equity into making a documentary in particular.”
