2018 Indy Film Fest

April 26 - May 6

Dear Indianapolis,

It’s hard to believe another year has passed and we’re all ready to embark on our 15th annual Indy Film Fest — our favorite 10 days of the year. Creating this festival is no easy task and could not happen without the endless support, expertise and gumption of our screeners, programmers, coders, designers, writers, social media specialists, sponsors, board members, volunteers, and most importantly, Y-O-U.

Every year, our movie-crazed team comes together to set the stage for our annual 10-day festival. The screening teams spent the past winter poring over thousands of submitted movies from around the world. From those submissions, we’ve curated 140 films we believe will change the way you look at the world. This year’s schedule is chock-full of stories that are a testament to the dynamism and vibrancy of today’s lmmakers. We think this is our strongest line-up yet!

Sure, you’re going to see some incredible movies this year. But you’ll also have the chance to meet the talented teams behind them. We’re pleased to host our traveling lmmakers who are anxious to share their movies with an engaged and enthusiastic audience (that’s you). It’s what makes a lm festival like ours so special. We encourage you to seek out our visiting lmmakers (just look for their lmmaker badges) and strike up a conversation. Who knows, it may even inspire you to tell your own story on film.

Last, but certainly not least, we want to acknowledge Indiana State University — our title sponsor. We’re grateful for their generosity and continued support of our mission to create a shared experience around lm. They’ve been a dedicated partner in helping us expand our vision and serve a growing, movie-loving audience. Dig into the schedule and prepare to fest on!

With love, The Indy Film Fest
