The Indigo Moon Film Festival (IMFF) team believes Film Inspires Change, which is why they established the IMFF Community Grant in 2019. Each year 100% of the box office net proceeds is donated to a nonprofit in Cumberland County to better in our community.
With every ticket and pass purchased, film attendees will know their money is going directly to help those in need in our community, so they too will be an agent of change right here!
Nonprofits wishing to be considered should reach out via email to GroundSwell for an application. To apply for the IMFF Community Grant: info@GroundSwellPictures.com.
The name of the recipient will be announced in August 2021.
GroundSwell Pictures is a non-profit in Fayetteville, North Carolina that seeks to engage and inspire diverse communities by producing films, showing films, teaching filmmaking and supporting films that make a positive difference and enrich the community through cultural arts. The annual film festival was started in 2015 to fill a need for this under-represented cultural art in this region.
The 6th-annual Indigo Moon Film Festival will be held in person October 8-10, 2021 in historic downtown Fayetteville, NC. An Opening Night Film and Reception on Friday provides the kick off for the festival. On Saturday, IMFF brings in more than 60 films from around the world to screen in 3 walkable venues. Filmmakers provide insight during post-screening Q&A sessions. The Awards Banquet is held on Sunday and acknowledges filmmakers with Jury Awards, Audience Awards and some special awards. An encore screening of the Jury Award winning films follows.
