    Indie Street Film Festival was a great experience. The venue was excellent and the festival was well-organized. We're glad we got to be a part of it.

  • Natalie Gee, one of the programmers for the festival, is a GEM and has graced this festival with her eye and love of films from across the world. I had the best time this year (2019) exploring the cute town of Red Bank! The theater where it screens is huge and gorgeous and the program was strong which though it's a smaller fest made it all more worth it and inspiring to attend and learn about filmmakers I wouldn't have otherwise learned about.

    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.
