First, it’s a variety of different types of films – international, American, animated, documentaries, even an animated documentary, shorts, features, thrillers, and comedies. See indyfilmfest.org for the list and schedule.
Second, even if you rarely go to movies and would rather stay in and watch something at home, there is something about seeing a movie at the art museum. There are also pretty good snacks: local gourmet popcorn and beer options, and if you’re lucky, the little café might be open if you want something more.
Third, organizers try to bring as many filmmakers to the festival as they can, so you might have a chance to ask them questions about the film you just saw. Or not, if you prefer to have a little mystery with your movies.
