2014 Indy Film Fest Jury Winners Announced




This year, we celebrated the 2014 Indy Film Fest’s  winners at a special “behind the screen” Awards Night ceremony at the IMA’s Toby Theater. It was definitely a surprising cinematic event, and one of our favorite memories of the 2014 festival.

Thanks to everyone who came out to join us this year throughout the ten days. We love sharing films with people who love movies as much as we do!

We’re already switching gears and starting to make plans for the 2015 festival, so mark your calendars for next July. Until then, check out all of our year-round programming.




Meet the winners of the 2014 indy film fest

Let's light it up, people.

July 17-26 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art


The Indy Film Fest has always been about creating a shared experience around film. For our 11th annual festival, we asked a simple question: how can we give audiences more?

We want to give you more than you remember, more than you are accustomed to. We want to give you more than you’d expect.

This year, we’re bringing in more filmmakers, screening more cutting-edge films, and combining the nostalgic with the newfangled in ways you’ve never experienced.

We can’t wait to show you everything we’ve got—and a little bit more than.

INTRODUCING the films of the 2014 Festival

Ten Spectacular Days in July

Including Three Hot Nights

We’re offering 10 huge days you won’t want to miss. This year, Awards Night has been moved to opening weekend, so you can make sure you catch every award-winning minute. And thanks to the generosity of our Kickstarters, we’re bringing in more filmmakers from around the globe to meet, mingle, and provide insight into their creative process. You’ll especially want to be a part of our three biggest nights. Be sure to buy tickets early because they will sell out. We can’t wait to see you!



Thursday, July 17

I ORIGINS follows a molecular biologist whose study of the human eye points to evidence with far reaching implications about our scientific and spiritual beliefs. Opening Night is presented by Just Pop In!



Saturday, July 19

With a crudely drawn treasure map, a lonely Japanese woman escapes her structured life in Tokyo and embarks on a foolhardy quest across the frozen tundra of Minnesota in search of mythical fortune in KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER. Awards Night is presented by Bandy Carroll Hellige!



Saturday, July 26

In LIFE AFTER BETH, Zach is devastated after his girlfriend, Beth, unexpectedly dies. When she suddenly rises from the dead, he sees it as a second chance and decides to do and say every thing he wishes he had while she was still alive.
