Indie Boots brings independent film, theatre, and music to audiences through annual festivals, special events and curated programs.
We show independent films that are a little unruly, films with different perspectives on whose stories are worth telling, what's funny, and how the world works. We show films that are micro-budget, or queer, or about activists, or women, or people of color, or deal with class, or disability, or the environment, or gender, or living outside the mainstream, or, well, you get the idea.
And a lot of the films are funny, too!
Indie Boots Film Festival brings independent film and music to audiences through an annual festival, special events and curated programs. We show independent films that are a little unruly, films with different perspectives on whose stories are worth telling, what's funny, and how the world works. The diverse programming for Indie Boots Film Festival is thoughtfully curated, includes many genres, and brings independent films to new audiences.
Indie Boots is an activist festival at heart, not out to make it big or be the next Sundance, but to bring people together to experience film as part of a community. We want you activists to be able to step into Indie Boots events with your guard down, enjoying both the frivolous and the purposeful. To have a chance to laugh, without leaving your conscience at the door. To be inspired to discussion, not depression. To find women, queer people, and people of color portrayed as entertaining complex characters, not as punch-lines and punching bags.
And as an activist festival, we make submitting accessible to filmmakers working on any budget. We do not charge submission fees, our submission process can be done online or via mail, and we do not require expensive formats for projection.
Indie Boots Film Festival is organized by the folks at mudgeonsoul productions to help fulfill their mission to bring people together to create and exhibit film, theater, music, performance and writing, as well as visual, functional and activist arts. mudgeonsoul productions projects are independently produced, collaborative and encourage coalition building between artists.
Our team includes filmmakers and film lovers who have traveled the festival circuit, and have worked in the programming and organizing of various festivals. We feel lucky to have the opportunity to share so many amazing independent films, both those discovered at other festivals and those submitted directly to Indie Boots.
