Indianapolis International Film Festival

Monday, a friend and I decided to check out the Indianapolis International Film Festival. I was tired that day from a weekend of poor sleep and wanted to skip it, but decided if all I had to do was park my butt in a theatre chair, I could do it.

And I am really glad I did.

The Indianapolis International Film Festival which lasts from July 15 - July 25 (so you still a few days to get out to see some of the films!) is being hosted at the IMA (which is a wonderful place just on its own).

My friend and I saw Fish Out of Water which was wonderful. My brief synopsis is that it is documentary exploring the way the Bible (specifically seven verses from the Bible) are used to repudiate homosexuality and the validity of those claims. Very interesting stuff. I came away with a much more lovely understanding of Jesus Christ, Christianity, and the Bible than I had going in. As a person who likes to study world religions, it was fascinating for me in that regard.

Unfortunately, this film is no longer being aired, but it looks there are still several great ones on the schedule.

Tickets for the time we went (3:15 pm) were $5 for students and $10 for regular admission.

Check it out! I think you'll enjoy it.
