Hoosier Films Annual Festival

The Hoosier Films Annual Festival (Thursday, March 24 – Sunday, March 26) celebrates the vibrant and diverse films and filmmakers of Indiana. Experience the impressive range and quality of Indiana-made films during three days of events at the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater. With a feature film each evening and two full days of themed short film blocks, this festival is your gateway to independent film in Indiana. Meet filmmakers from around the state and learn about their work during Q&A sessions at the end of each screening. Build connections among filmmakers, film aficionados, and local art supporters at social events throughout the festival when you purchase a VIP pass.
