The 4th Annual Indy Shorts International Film Festival ran as a hybrid model with virtual, outdoor, and indoor screenings at the Living Room Theaters, IndyFringe, and the Indianapolis Art Center, July 20-25,2021! This was a unique year for us, but we were still able to award more than $30,000 in cash prizes, present over 200 films on a secure virtual platform, and achieve the 5050X2020 Parity Pledge.


This was the second year that Indy Shorts was a three-category, Academy Award®-Qualifying film festival, with the three films qualified all directed by women.
