2011 Indy Film Fest Program Announced The 8th annual event opens with Fox Searchlight’s ANOTHER EARTH.

Indianapolis, Ind. – The 8th annual Indianapolis International Film Festival will take place July 14-24 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA), and will feature films from the US and around the world. At a Sneak Peek event on June 16, the festival announced a slate of nearly 100 short and feature-length films, included below. The events open July 14 with a screening of Fox Searchlight’s ANOTHER EARTH, the story of an ambitious young student and an accomplished composer who cross paths on the night of the discovery of a duplicate planet in the solar system (http://www.anotherearth.com).

With more films to select from than ever, this year’s line-up – screened in American Spectrum (domestic), Matter of Fact (documentary) and World Cinema (foreign) programs – promises to be the most compelling yet. Titles range from selections featured at Sundance, Tribeca and Cannes film festivals to newly discovered regional filmmaking. Films will compete for Best Of in their respective categories, as well as Audience Awards and a Grand Jury Award for best film of the fest, which carries a $1,000 prize purse.

The festival closes on Saturday, July 23 with THESE AMAZING SHADOWS, a 2011 Sundance Film Festival official selection that chronicles the creation of the National Film Registry and the importance of film preservation, a must-see for even the most casual film fan. All festival awards will be presented after the film, followed by a Closing Night party to wrap up the festival. Sunday, July 24 concludes festival screenings with last-chance viewings of all award-winners.

“We see it as our job to make these festival hits and undiscovered gems available to an Indianapolis and regional audience,” said Festival Managing Director Lisa Trifone. “Our audiences can’t make it to Park City or Toronto every year, so we’re proud to cultivate a following for these films in this area.”

Recognized as Hoosier Lens film selections this year – films with Indiana ties – are two feature films: APART, directed by Purdue alum Aaron Rottinghaus, and WE’RE GLAD YOU’RE HERE, made in Bloomington, Indiana by Hannah Fidell. Short films WALTER, directed by Jonathan Dillon, and TYPE A, a documentary produced by the IMA, are also recognized for their Indiana ties.

The entire festival line-up is available online at http://indyfilmfest.slated.com/2011 and will be printed in the July 13 issue of NUVO, distributed throughout the Indianapolis area. This year’s feature film selections are:
