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 People” 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.
