“Where’s Amy?” She was checking out the 2015 Indy Film Festival at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The IFF Opening Film “Sleeping With Other People” was a hit with the audience and afterwards I enjoyed the after party designed for filmgoers to have conversations about the film. I ran into a lot of Current ZIP code friends throughout the evening and mingled with local Carmel filmmaker Forest Etsler and his family. “Where’s Amy?” always supports local film makers and was thrilled to see local artist and high school pal Philip Campbell’s film “Your Catfish Friend: Philip Campbell.”
Two filmmakers from Carmel had films shown as well; Michael Goldburg had a big attendance for his short film “What’s Eating Dad?” and my favorite film “Peanut Gallery” by Molly Gandour was hands down a crowd favorite. The IFF also had a sold-out brewer’s brunch where filmgoers had a chance to try delicious beer samples from local breweries, brunch and attend a screening of the hit “Blood, Sweat and Beer.”
Hat’s off to the executive director Craig Mince of Carmel, president Jason Roemer and the entire IFF Committee, volunteers and sponsors for one heck of a film festival.
