IIFF Update

Yesterday good news came into the email inbox from the Indianapolis International Film Festival. yes, we are still 3 months away from the festival, but the submission dealine passed and the festival has recieved a record 526 films from 56 nations. An increase of over 70% from last year.

From the email:

In addition, three former Oscar nominees submitted films along with a Camera d'Or winner from the Cannes Film Festival. We also received more than a dozen films selected for Sundance, and a multitude of films that showed at Berlin, Toronto, and Locarno.

And here is a PDF of a press release.

It's looking more and more likely that I will be purchasing the Passport for this years festival. I am very much looking forward to it.
