Iowa Independent Film Festival

The 2016 version of the Iowa Independent Film Festival will take place on September 16, 17 and 18 at the Historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City.

In order to simplify and make the festival easier to plan and manage this year, we are not soliciting films or giving awards. Rather we are inviting a smaller number of films with strong connections to Iowa and Mason City, and not charging submission fees for them.

It is our hope that this format will result in a festival with a smaller number of quality films that will appeal to our local audience which has been the mainstay of the festival.

Thanks to the IIFF’s connection to Tanna Frederick, we are also expecting to have some special guests from the Hollywood community in attendance. Tanna will also be bringing her cutting edge virtual reality film which earlier this year was screened at the Sundance festival and in Switzerland.
