Indianapolis LGBT Film Festival

Another weekend, another film festival!  These are really a lot of fun to go to.  This weekend I visited Indianapolis and went to the Indy LGBT Film Festival.  It was held at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and was well attended.

The film festival supports a group called Indiana Youth Group (IYG), and a representative was there opening night to talk a little about the group.  It sounds like they are very active and even doing some new and different things to improve the lives of LGBT youth.

The museum is in a pretty accessible location and there was lots of parking nearby.  I had a festival pass so it was easy coming and going, but they had a nice set up where you could quickly and easily buy tickets for individual films.  Opening night started with “Such Good IMAPeople” and there was a premiere night party at a restaurant downtown called Chef Joseph’s.  I was pretty excited when I won a raffle prize!

They showed a good selection of films including feature length films that catered to men and women as well as shorts for both as well.  I ended up seeing 3 films – the opening night film, Ten Year Plan, and Tiger Orange.  I even liked the vintage ads they were showing before the films – unique and different.  Swag bags for those in attendance were a nice touch.

Thanks to the folks who made the film festival possible and their hard work.  Everything that I saw went off without a hitch, and it was a great opportunity to see some fun, new LGBT films.
