Indy Film Fest

28Jul/130

2013 Indy Film Fest winners announced

The tenth annual Indy Film Fest wraps up today after ten days of screening nearly 100 films to thousands of film fans at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) and beyond. Throughout the festival, the Indy Film Fest played host to several Midwestern premieres, unique workshops and panel discussions with filmmakers from coast to coast, fulfilling the festival’s mission to create a shared experience around film. At the Closing Party at the IMA earlier this evening, the Indy Film Fest announced its 10 winning films, selected by a panel of film professionals.

The Grand Jury Award, with a cash prize of $1,000, went to Medora, a tale of the down-but-not-out Medora Indiana Hornets varsity basketball team. The team’s epic losing streak mirrors the town’s fight for survival. Medora is an in-depth, deeply personal look at small-town life, a thrilling, underdog basketball story and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them.
