50 Over Film & Filmmaker Talk

50 states. 50 days. 50 rounds of golf.  Stripped of the exclusivity and elitism of the country club, 50 Over sets out to explore the tattered fairways and diverse personalities of public golf courses in every corner of the United States.

Available through June 21st.

Rent 50 Over  $10.

Leinbach is donating $5 of the ticket price to the Byrd Theatre and $5 of the ticket price to SwingPals, an organization that’s mission is to build a foundation of health and strong character in children facing adversity by using golf.


Who is Teddy Leinbach?

Teddy Leinbach, a filmmaker living in Richmond, VA, has spent the past four years immersing himself in documentary filmmaking since graduating from VCU in 2016.  He has worked as a freelance cinematographer, editor, animator, and graphics specialist for independent filmmakers, businesses, and production companies, such as Markay Media, the team behind the Emmy award winning series, A Chef’s Life.  Teddy has also produced his own work, directing several short films as well as two feature length documentaries, 50 Over and Sisyphean, which were both completed in 2019.  Also in 2019, he launched thisisrva.com, a web-based interview series based around uniquely influential people in Richmond, VA.  His work has screened at film festivals nation-wide and has taken him across the world from courtside at Madison Square Garden to the square of Maidan in Ukraine.  His work tends to explore sports as a microcosm for all the complexities of what it means to be human.
