Lebowski Fest is a yearly festival that started in 2002 in Louisville, Kentucky, in celebration of the 1998 cult film The Big Lebowski, a movie written and directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. The event usually takes place over two nights, featuring a screening of the film, live music, and a bowling party attended by several of the movie's fans. The gathering is typically held in its home city of Louisville, but it has also taken place in Milwaukee, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Austin, Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, London, Boston, and Pittsburgh. Many stars from The Big Lebowski have showed up at the fest in the years since it began, such as Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro.
Lebowski Fest was co-founded by Will Russell and Scott Shuffitt, two natives of Louisville. Russell and Shuffitt, along with Bill Green and Ben Peskoe, wrote the book, I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski, and What Have You. Additionally, a documentary has been made about Lebowski Fest, titled The Achievers.
Lebowski Fest has also been featured on the Food Network show "Ace of Cakes." The episode called "The Big Cakeowsk" shows the Charm City Cakes staff making a movie-themed cake and dropping it off at Lebowski Fest in Louisville.
The Dude Abides is the British equivalent of Lebowski Fest, which takes place in London each year.
The Big Lebowski is set in the early 1990s. Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski, a jobless Los Angeles slacker and ardent bowler nicknamed "the Dude." After he is mistaken for someone else, the Dude gets introduced to a very wealthy man also named Jeffrey Lebowski. When the millionaire Lebowski's trophy wife gets kidnapped, he puts the Dude on a mission to deliver the ransom in order to get her released. However, the plan gets all messed up when the Dude's friend Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) devises his own plan to keep the full ransom. Other stars of the movie include Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro. The supporting actors include Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Huddleston, and Tara Reid. The Big Lebowski was met with dismal U.S. box office results, and garnered mixed reviews after it was released. However, reviews of the movie have grown more positive over the years, and fans appreciate the movie more as time goes on.
The film features music by Carter Burwell, cinematography by Roger Deakins, and editing by Tricia Cooke and Roderick Jaynes.
