There’s so much to do.

Indy Film Fest is a 10-day celebration of fun and film that happens each July. All events are open to the public and require tickets or an all-access pass that can be purchased at the festival box office or at

We are proud to screen some of the most exciting and innovative independent films the world has to offer. We welcome you to be a part of the Festival, whether you’re around for every single second, or just attend a single screening. We know you’ll find something here that you’ll never forget.

About The Circle City

You’re gonna love Indianapolis. We sure do. There’s lots to see and do here: there’s Monument Circle, the world’s largest children’s museum, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and a whole bunch of great shops and restaurants. You’ll experience the Festival at two great museums, the Indiana State Museum and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. You can even catch a great glimpse of downtown from the scenic White River Canal Walk.

Whatever activities you squeeze in between film screenings, we’re sure you’ll really like it here.
