‘Indy Welcomes All’ names video winner

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A video created to show Indianapolis and Indiana in a positive light is getting a lot of likes online.

Freelance videographer Matt Panfil is the winner of the “Indy Welcomes All” video contest.

The contest was sponsored by Downtown Indy.

Panfil grew up here, went away for a couple of years, and came back fully intending to leave again.

But, he says the music and art scene here in Indy is better than it’s ever been, and that’s why he plans to stay in Indianapolis.

A growing city and vibrant culture is what he wanted to capture with his video.

“There was a lot of backlash and hate toward the city after the RFRA fallout,” said Panfil.  “I wanted to make a video that not just kind of attempted to restore the image of Indianapolis, but showed what it really is, that it’s comprised of the people, and kind of the pulse of the city, not our politicians.”
