The Second INDIs Film Festival

Returning for its second edition, The INDIs (Independent Directions) Film Festival features specialist screenings of films, including independent British and International cinema, industry sessions, panel discussions and other installations entirely curated for an audience of 15-30 year olds. With a particular focus on networking with other passionate young people who are interested in film as a career and art-form. The seventh INDIs Awards champions and celebrates the talent of the UK’s young independent filmmakers up to the age of 25, and is a core of the wider festival.

The INDIs Film Festival is presented by Leeds City Council with the support of the BFI Film Festival Fund, awarding funds from The National Lottery, and by public funding from Arts Council England.

The full programme will be available soon.
