What is the Indy Film Fest?

The Indy Film Fest is a nonprofit, volunteer based organization that puts on a 10-day film festival in July. In its 14th year, the Fest seeks to champion movies that entertain, challenge and expand perspectives in Indianapolis and beyond all year long.

What is the Bigger Picture Show?

The Bigger Picture Show is a partnership with Lodge Design that brings together more than 70 local designers to reimagine their favorite movie posters. This year, since it’s the 8th year for the Bigger Picture Show, the theme is “8Trax: Movies with Music.” Event attendees cast bids for the artwork through a silent auction process. The person who makes the highest bid by the end of the event takes the framed artwork home.
