Event Description


Colorado Springs, CO, September 1, 2021- As part of the 2021 Arts Month Celebration in Colorado Springs the local Indie Spirit Film Festival (ISFF) returns to The Pikes Peak Region as a Virtual Event October 1st – 8th via our hosting partner, Eventive.

After a brief hiatus, the festival is now in its 8th year. After careful consideration we have decided to proceed with the film festival as a virtual event. Eventive, has allowed us to make a smooth transition into the virtual presentation environment.

What are the benefits of a Virtual Festival? We can now extend our festival from 3 days to 8 allowing us to present more films without time constraints. Also, viewers have the benefit of watching from the comfort and safety of their home with family and friends.

Over 85 films have been selected including 10 Comedy/ Drama Features, 33 Comedy/Drama Shorts, 16 Documentary Features, 13 Documentary Shorts, and 14 Young Filmmakers Shorts including 5 award-winning films from the Youth Documentary Academy film program based in Colorado Springs as featured in the PBS Our Time series.

The films range from international offerings from Australia, Morocco, France, and the UK, with National selections from Grand Rapids, Kansas City, and Los Angeles to Colorado-based films from Denver and Colorado Springs.

We have asked our Filmmakers to send in a recorded Q&A about their films and you will be able to view the results from all participating Filmmakers after each film.

About the Festival: The Indie Spirit Film Festival is an annual event for filmmakers and film lovers alike, with a superb program of feature films, shorts, in both narrative and documentary formats from around the world. The Indie Spirit Film Festival (ISFF) showcases the work of independent filmmakers amidst the mountainous backdrop of Colorado Springs, Colorado and is about filmmakers, audiences, and film professionals establishing a relationship and supporting independent film.

In the past at our Live events, the festival has become one of Colorado Springs’ major film festivals, with numerous filmmakers and film fans attending screenings, Q&A sessions, filmmaker panels, and receptions.

It has been a difficult time for everyone getting through the Covid pandemic. Even though we are finally able to see a light at the end of the tunnel, we are still concerned about any health risks. We are happy that we can bring our festival back as a virtual event, and hope that we will return as a Live event in 2022.
