About this project
The Making of a Festival
Since 2004, the Indy Film Fest has quickly grown into one of the Midwest’s fastest-growing and most-watched film festivals. With attendance growing every year, we continue to deepen our impact on the city and the film community worldwide. But we can't do it without you. As a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, we depend on the support of the community to sustain and flourish.
How You Can Help
The 2011 Indy Film Fest (July 14 - 24 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art) will again be one of the highest-profile events on the city's annual arts calendar. Your support will position the organization to present the best event possible by supporting the operational functions of an arts organization — facilities rental, monthly bills, materials printing and more. This is your chance to make a small donation, then experience first-hand what your generous gift made possible. For just a few bucks, you’ll be right in the thick of things, watching the movies, going to parties, meeting the filmmakers, and connecting with other film lovers just like you — all the while knowing we're in the best venue with greatest sound because you made an investment in the dream of The Bigger Picture.
What You'll Get Out of It
Being an official festival backer means you'll become a part of a 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 by being a part of our Bigger Picture.
By becoming part of The Bigger Picture, you'll receive a variety of perks and rewards as our thank you for your support, ranging from screening tickets to premium access to VIP lounges and countless swag and freebies. When you donate $50 or more, you'll become an official member of the Indy Film Fest, which lasts the entire year and gets you into all of our exclusive screenings and events.
