2008 Indiana Festival of Independent Film

2008 Indiana Festival of Independent Film

It was an amazing afternoon as Cinephile Film Arts presented the 2008 Indiana Festival of Independent Film. Six hours of programing featuring 13 shorts and features by Indiana film makers.

Opening the festival was guest speaker Angelo Pizzo (Rudy, Hoosiers) he gave insightful advice to the crowd talking about the importance of story and character as well as being asked question after question about the importance of You Tube.

The opening film was Kate Chaplin’s First They Came for… “I was so nervous,” said Chaplin, “I just really wanted everyone to like the film and not throw things.” It wasn’t long until Chaplin got her answer. The film commenced to appreciable applause.

Next up for Chaplin and First They Came for….is a showing at the IMAX theater in Indianapolis where the film is an official selection in the Really Big Film Festival on February 23rd. When asked how Chaplin feels seeing her movie on an IMAX screen she said, “A little film with a big heart may just feel at home on the big screen.”

    Kate, We have known Mark for a year or two and he told us of the video. I watched it on youtube. It is an awesome short film. Great work and I look forward to seeing more in the future.

    Hey there,
    My name is Andrew Gilbert. I was the producer, writer and cinematographer for Cellar Door, a movie also shown at the IFIF. I didn’t get a chance to see you while we were there, but I wanted to say that I thought your film was very well done. I think that’s a great compliment to a new filmmaker, you did a great job with the money you had. Oh well, keep at it.
