WHAT IS iNDIE FILM FEST?

February 11,12,13 of 2021 in downtown Phoenix,  iNDIE FILM FEST becomes the ultimate gathering of creative storytellers and audiences eager for new voices and fresh perspectives. Our visual extravaganza includes dramatic and documentary features, short films, music videos, virtual reality adventures, and multimedia installations by artists from all over the world.  2021 begins with a new way of sharing films at iNDIE FILM FEST.

We had a record breaking year this year with going virtual due to Covid 19 risks. Our festival went online and around the world in a major way screening our sessions in more than 12 different countries around the world and 10 different states in the US. We could not have done this without the amazing support of our community here in downtown Phoenix. Thank you all so much for everything in helping us make this year the best yet. We look forward to hopefully seeing you all in person next year as well as online as we will be growing our fest in both directions starting in 2022 with Online and In Person Screenings. Stay tuned for more information on how to submit your films for our 2022 Indie Film Fest in the coming weeks. Thank you to the amazingly talented filmmakers who submitted your films to our 2021 festival, it was absolutely the highest quality in storytelling we have hosted to date.
