Designed with indies in mind, the Circle City Film Festival emerges as a platform designed to promote diversity through the art of independent film. Our goal is to not only celebrate, but support filmmakers, actors, and artists in an effort to share and express our artistic abilities; and to provide these creatives with the resources, tools, and network they need to succeed in the independent realm and beyond.

On our mission to encourage the development of creative arts in and around Indianapolis, and the Midwest, the Circle City Film Festival celebrates the art of filmmaking with film screenings, informative panels, workshops, awards, and amazing networking opportunities. Created on the foundation of inclusion, CCFF strongly encourages women and people of color to submit their work.

Our first year was a success! With fundamental workshops, amazing films, and influential mentors traveling from LA and Atlanta, we brought a monumental experience to the city of Indianapolis...and year two will be even bigger!
