BLOOMINGTON — The 2020 "Hoosier Film Festival" is ready for live-streaming starting Thursday, as it goes completely virtual.
The inaugural festival had to be pushed back in March due to the rise in the coronavirus. Now, festival-goers can stream films live or on-demand and join interactive Q&A's through the "Hopin.to" platform.
“We're grateful for the community’s support of Hoosier Films, especially the venues, vendors, and sponsors who have been so helpful and flexible while we adjust our plans. Our top priority this year is to keep everyone safe and healthy,” Meredith McGriff, Hoosier Films co-founder and CEO, said.
All films are, of course, made in Indiana or by Indiana filmmakers. There will be 40 films, including three feature films and 37 short films.
Filmmakers being featured are from all over the state, and the genres will include comedy, drama, sci-fi, and more.
