More than 60 independent films from 20 different countries will be showcased this month as part of an international festival celebrating original work and the independent film-making community.
The Indie-Lincs film festival will return to the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre on the Brayford Pool Campus of the University of Lincoln, UK, where it will delight movie fans for a third year in a row.
The festival champions dynamic, inventive and challenging fiction, documentary and animated films, from both the UK and overseas that embody the low and micro budget filmmaking ethic. This year it is being sponsored by the University’s Lincoln School of Film and Media, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre and the Lincoln Film Society.
Screenings will take place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March 2018 with day and weekend tickets available. There will also be a range of panel discussions throughout the weekend, including ‘How do I get my film into a film festival?’ and ‘Screenwriting for Independent Film’.
All films screened during the two-day festival will compete to be the winner of a coveted Lincoln Imp award. Other awards include The Angry Imp, the Most Challenging Film, the Little Imp for the Best Short Film, and the Thespian Imp for the Best Actor.
The festival is the brainchild of Dr Mikey Murray, a lecturer in Film Production in the Lincoln School of Film and Media at the University of Lincoln.
Dr Murray said: “It’s great that we’re able to bring Indie-Lincs and these incredible independent films back to Lincoln for the third time, and this year’s programme is even bigger and better than before.
“As well as our screenings and panel discussions, we also have some fantastic special guests, including the actress and stand-up comedian, Rebecca Root, actor, writer and film-maker Steve Oram, and actor John Hollingworth.
“I hope that as well as enjoying the films and activities, the film fans who attend the festival will feel inspired to get out there, experiment, and make their own original films.”
