The second edition of the 4SCENE Film Festival is here! Submissions were received from talented individuals all across Indianapolis, and now their work is coming to the big screen. Tai Payne, festival organizer for the 4SCENE Film Festival, joined us today to share everything we need to know about it.

The 4SCENE Film Festival was created to provide a platform for local filmmakers, content creators, music artists and more to showcase their visual productions to the Indianapolis community. The event is held 3 times a year (in June, August, & October) at the Tibbs Drive-In Theatre.

You can experience the festival Wednesday, August 25 at 9 p.m.

Any time of year is a good time for a story, but Halloween is a great time, especially for a ghost story.

So, just in time for Halloween season, Storytelling Arts is hosting their popular Ghost Stories Event with the added bonus of two drive-in movie screenings!

On today’s Indy Style, Tracy chatted with the Co-founder of Storytelling Arts Indiana, Bob Sander.

There will be two films shown after the live, ghost stories “The Addams Family” and “The Ring.” Guests can stay until 1:00 a.m. to watch them if they want. So, for $50 a carload, this is quite a deal.

Storytelling Arts of Indiana has redesigned its popular Ghost Stories event for fans to enjoy safely in the age of COVID-19. Relocating from Crown Hill Cemetery to Tibbs Drive-In allows guests to remain in their cars or socially distanced in lawn chairs for the ultimate, outdoor, fall tailgating experience on Friday, October 23, 2020.

Hoosier storytellers Celestine Bloomfield, David Matlack, Sally Perkins and Bob Sander will spin spine-tingling tales for all to enjoy, followed by a family-friendly scary movie on the big screen. When it ends, we’ll show one for the adults. Decorate your car and plan to wear a costume!

Patty Spitler of Great Day TV joined us today with the “long and short of it,” specifically, the Shorts of it as the Indy Shorts International Film Festival begins next week!

It’s the Midwest’s largest short film festival, running from July 21 to the 26.

Indy Shorts International Film Festival, presented by Heartland Film and the organizers of the Heartland International Film Festival (HIFF), is an Academy Award®-qualifying fest dedicated to the art of short film! Indy Shorts showcases storytelling from around the world in Indianapolis.

Indy Shorts expanded as its own separate event from HIFF in summer 2018 and all winners (Grand Prize and Audience Choice Awards) play encore screenings at the Heartland International Film Festival in October.
