    I have nothing but kind words to say about this festival. I am so thankful that the Indianapolis LGBT Film Festival selected my film Never Fall In Love With a Straight Girl to be screen in their festival. Likewise, the social media team was fantastic and sent me the loveliest messages of praise and encouragement. Overall a wonderful experience because of a wonderful staff.

  • Really well run festival, especially for a first time all online. The website was great looking, operated flawlessly and the film selection was top notch. Plus the decision to sell a $25 pass for all movies was smart. Very impressed with the management of this fest. Bravo.

  • I was super proud to be programmed into this lovely festival in 2020 when it went all-virtual. Matthew the main organizer is a great individual, extremely communicative and helpful. Great, great experience!

    I wasn't able to attend the screening but was very glad to learn that my film was well received there! The organizers were fantastic and the general vibe is very supportive!
