Independent film festival returns to Lincoln for third year

Film lovers with an eclectic taste for independent cinema can now snap up their tickets to watch a variety of movies from around the world at the third Indie-Lincs International Film Festival.

Over 60 independent films from 20 different countries will be showcased on March 17-18 as part of the international festival for the third year in a row at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC).

Films showcased will range from fiction and documentary to animation, and they will all compete to be the winner of a coveted Lincoln Imp award, with other movie accolades also up for grabs on the day.

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’.

This year’s special guests include actress and stand-up comedian Rebecca Root, actor, writer and film-maker Steve Oram, and actor John Hollingworth.

Dr Mikey Murray is a Lecturer in Film Production at the University of Lincoln and created the festival. He said: “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.”

Screenings will take place on both the Saturday and Sunday with day and weekend tickets available from the LPAC Box Office on 01522 837600 or online here, priced at £7 (£4 concession) for a day ticket and £12 (£6 concession) for a weekend pass.
