Love loving movies all year long?
Let's start a film fling
Throughout the year, the Indy Film Fest continues to create a shared experience around film by championing movies that entertain, challenge and expand our perspectives. It's the cornerstone of our mission, and the reason for our being. Come out and join the shenanigans at any (and all) of our year-round programs. You'll find we were made for each other.
7pm // Thursday, January 22 at The White Rabbit Cabaret
The evening will incude a special selection of FREE-PLAY Nintendo standup arcade games from our friends at Tappers Arcade Bar. Oh, and we'll be breaking out the POWER GLOVE for a little on-screen gameplay before the movie! Space is limited. Seating will be provided. The doors and the arcade game free-play will open at 7pm (movie at 8pm). This is a 21+ screening.
10am // Saturday, February 7 at the Athenaeum
Beginning this January, parents and kids are invited to experience Cereal Cinema, a unique family-friendly experience, complete with a delicious cereal buffet!
CALLING ALL FILMMAKERS
2015 Festival Submissions are open!
The Indy Film Fest has opened submissions for the 12th Annual Indy Film Fest, to be held July 16 – 25, 2015. The Festival welcomes submissions of feature-length and short films, in the following four categories:
- American Spectrum films are defined as narrative films primarily produced in the United States, particularly those films without any strong ties to Indiana.
- Hoosier Lens films are defined as narrative or documentary films with strong production ties to Indiana. This includes major cast or crew ties to the state (born, raised, attended school in state), and/or a significant portion of the film was shot and/or produced in Indiana.
- World Cinema films are defined as narrative films originating from any country outside of the United States.
- Matter of Fact films are defined as documentary films, regardless of country of origin. Documentaries with significant Indiana ties may submit in the Hoosier Lens category if desired.
Our screening committee looks forward to seeing what you’ve been up to. Submissions are open through April.
