    Indie Street is awesome!! I went this year (2018) and although the festival is only in its a 3rd year, they have it really figured out. Super well organized, great films, A+ hospitality, really fun parties and met tons of cool people. What more could you want? 10/10 would recommend.

    This is a very cool festival in a very cool little town. The festival literally spills out into the streets, incorporating community-involved art and performances. Great local participation. Full houses.

    I was so thrilled to have my short film HEAD as a part of this fest. They had great communication and were so friendly to filmmakers, really celebrating the films that they were programming. I wish that I been able to attend in person but our writer/lead actor attended on our films behalf and had only positive things to say about the experience of being there in person. I hope to show more films here in the future!

    Indie Street Film Festival is a shining example of what film festivals should be. They care for the quality of films and know how to treat filmmakers right. I can't say enough good things about this festival. ISFF grows every year and is primed to become one of the best festivals in the country!

    Filmmaker friendly. Great audience and location. Doesn't feel like a 2nd year festival; incredibly well organized and programmed. Will only get better and better, and its already fantastic.
