About

Our mission is to provide a fun and engaging experience that celebrates film and the community of Evansville.

Our opening gala will be held at the historic Victory Theatre, a 1900 seat facility built in 1921 in the heart of the city, on Thursday evening. On Friday and Saturday attendees will view films from around the world while experiencing our revitalized downtown district. Venues include the Old National Public Theatre, Innovation Pointe, and the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana.

We intend to showcase films that might not otherwise have an opportunity to screen in the Evansville, Indiana market from around the world. We will educate and entertain filmmakers and students by presenting workshops, screenings, and other opportunities to meet and network with others in the industry and to bring an audience to those films.

Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the festival will go to restoring the original sign that used to hang on the Victory at the corner of NW 6th Street & Main. We are proud that our festival will help to add a piece of history back to this historic theater! Learn more about the Victory Theatre at itsĀ official website.
