As an all-volunteer organization, we need help from good people like Y-O-U to help us make our 20th annual festival the best fest yet! We’re hoping you (and 999 of your closest friends) can help us reach our $20,000 goal so we can continue to host more filmmakers, more parties, and more of what you know and love about the Indy Film Fest.

13th Bigger Picture Show

To celebrate some of cinema’s most unlucky characters (and stories), this year’s show is all about the things that can account for a colossal run of bad luck: moral compromise, poor judgement, blinding jealousy, unchecked greed, or just a bunch of dumb luck. All posters will be sold in a live, silent auction on Friday, March 31, at the Circle City Industrial Complex.
