24Jul/112

And the winner is…

Posted by Sara McGuyer

Fresh on the heels of their acquisition by The Cinema Guild, NATURAL SELECTION triumphs as the Grand Jury winner of Indy Film Fest. This distinction names it best overall film at the festival and carries a $1,000 prize. In addition to the Grand Jury award, the film directed by Robbie Pickering also earned the distinction of Best American Spectrum Feature Film.

It's a total bonus that the film has Indiana ties. The film's production designer Michael Bricker is an Indiana native and the co-founder and Executive Director at People for Urban Progress in Indianapolis.

All winners get an encore screening! If you missed them, catch them today at The IMA!

The IMA Culturally Adventurous Award is a new honor bestowed on an official Indy Film Fest selection by festival host Indianapolis Museum of Art.
