Indy Film Fest

22Jun/120

Welcome, Fancy Bloggers!

Posted by Sara McGuyer

If you've been in tune with the fest, you just might have heard us hollering about our freshly announced 2012 line up. We couldn't be happier with the slate of films, our many sponsors and partners, and one outstanding group who is helping us spread the word about our films this year.

Back in February, we sent out a Valentine to a few handfuls of people we admire, people who have witty and smart things to say about art and culture in Indianapolis. We opened it up for a few more people to toss their name in too, in case people weren't on our radar. In the end, a really stellar group agreed to watch and review a few movies for us. In the coming days, you'll see our blog lit on fire like never before. Man alive, it's gonna be great.

Without further ado, please help us welcome these super stars!
