Indy Shorts 2022



The 5th Annual Indy Shorts International Film Festival ran as a hybrid model with virtual, outdoor, and indoor screenings at the Living Room Theaters, Newfields, and the Indianapolis Art Center, July 19-24,2022! Over six days, we witnessed 150 short films,  streamed 7,000+ short films, met 100 talented filmmakers, awarded $30,000+ in cash prizes, presented three Oscar® qualifications, consumed 700 bags of cotton candy, and made countless memories!

This was the third year that Indy Shorts was a three-category, Academy Award®-Qualifying film festival!
