The INDY Awards are hosted by the Indiana Film Society as a chance to showcase, celebrate, and honor Indianapolis filmmakers. The film festival, in which INDY Awards are given out, is hosted ever other year as a way to enhance Indianapolis arts and film.
The purpose of the INDY awards are to connect Indianapolis people. Audiences of this one night film festival are introduced to movies being made in their own backyards, while Indiana film makers are put in touch with enthusiastic viewers excited to receive new local films. This Indianapolis festival is held every other year to give the Indiana Film Society a longer period of time to fund raise and organize the upcoming INDY Awards. In addition the two year pause between festivals gives Hoosier film makers time to present more polished work in competition for the INDY Awards.
This Indianapolis film festival is a way for amateur and aspiring film directors to produce and screen work. The opportunity for directors to participate in an Indianapolis event such as this one is invaluable for getting feedback on the work they have done thus far and on creating a connection and a loyal following of Indianapolis audiences to Indianapolis film artists. The INDY Awards are wonderfully positive reinforcement for struggling festival participants.
The Circle City is perfect meeting place for film makers all over the state to compete in the festival for awards. With plenty of Indianapolis attractions, yummy Indianapolis restaurants, and interesting locations to be scouted for future filming, Indy is the perfect host city for a regional film festival like this one. The next INDY Awards film festival will be held in 2010, meaning the call for entries is fast approaching with this Fall.
