Our Filmmakers Have All the Fun

2015 Indianapolis Motor Speedway All-Access Tour

The Indy Film Fest gives us a chance to show off our city to the visiting filmmakers. They spend ten days exploring our streets and neighborhoods, eating in our restaurants and meeting the cast of characters who call Indianapolis home.

This year, we thought it would be fun to arrange a private behind-the-scenes tour of one of our most iconic landmarks: The Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Wow, what an experience. We went everywhere in the Pagoda, learned about its rich history and even stopped to kiss the bricks. Here’s a taste of what this Indy Film Fest filmmaker experience was all about.

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.

With six year-round programs geared to movie lovers of all ages, and a robust 10-day festival in July, there’s always something to see at the Indy Film Fest. Come out and join the shenanigans at any (or all) of our special events and screenings. We think you’ll agree, we were meant to be together.
