Year Round Film Fun

The Fest Continues All Year Long



CEREAL CINEMA // Saturday, Sept 17 // The Athenaeum

In the future, a spaceship dubbed the USS Palomino is on its way back to Earth when it discovers another ship that had been assumed missing, the USS Cygnus. Kate McCrae (Yvette Mimieux), a scientist aboard the Palomino, learns that it's the same ship upon which her father had served as a crew member. When the Palomino's crew boards the Cygnus, they are met by Dr. Reindhardt (Maximilian Schell) and a bizarre, faceless army who plan to be the first people ever to explore a black hole.



ROVING CINEMA // Saturday, Oct 29 at 7:30pm // The Indianapolis Museum of Art

Presented in partnership with ArtX. The sleepy little town of Woodsboro just woke up screaming. There's a killer in their midst who's seen a few too many scary movies. Suddenly nobody is safe, as the psychopath stalks victims, taunts them with trivia questions, then rips them to bloody shreds. It could be anybody...


Fest On, People!

The official trailer of the 2016 Indy Film Fest. It's Reel Indy.

Love loving movies all year long?

12 months a year, the Indy Film Fest champions movies that entertain, challenge, and expand our perspectives. That’s what we were born to do. And our growing network of friends and followers are stepping up and coming out to join us for all the filmy fun.
