Another year. Another festival. Another chance to support what we do and enjoy the perks that go with it.
The Bigger Picture
Last year, dozens supported our efforts to present a film festival that grew leaps and bounds over previous years. Attendance was up 16% and we brought to Indianapolis films from the likes of Sundance, Tribeca, Rotterdam and Berlin Film Festivals, plus undiscovered favorites, too. As the 2012 Indy Film Fest approaches, your support will once again make this year's events more impactful than ever. As a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, we depend on the support of our community to sustain and flourish.
How You Can Help
The 2012 Indy Film Fest is set for July 19 - 29 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (and special screenings at The Earth House Collective, too). Your support of this highly-anticipated annual event will mean we can present the best event possible, which comes with unavoidable operational and logistical expenses. This is your chance to make a donation of any size, then experience first-hand what your generosity makes possible.
You'll be right in the thick of things, watching the movies, going to the parties, meeting the filmmakers and connecting with other film fans just like you - all while knowing you made an investment in making it all happen.
What You Get In Return
Being an official festival backer means you'll become a part of our community - a community of like-minded film lovers, a community that appreciates a story well told, a character expertly developed, and an experience shared on screen. Support the Indy Film Fest and you're a part of the Bigger Picture.
Whether you contribute $10 or $1,000, you'll receive a variety of perks as our thank you for your support, ranging from screening tickets to premium access to screenings and swag. You become an official member of Indy Film Fest with your donation, meaning the rewards just keep coming, as you gain access to all our year-round events and screenings.
