The InLight Film Festival is a human rights-focused documentary film festival. There will be a total of eight screenings featured from April 14-16.

The InLight Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, a student-led festival, will take place April 14-16. The biannual festival is intended to foster dialogue between documentary filmmakers, students and Bloomington community members. 

Inaugurated in 2015, the fifth edition of ILFF will feature a total of eight screenings. Guest filmmakers and scholars will be present at each screening to participate in post-film discussions.

The festival’s films will be screened in the Wells Library Screening Room of the Moving Image Archive, IU Cinema and Buskirk-Chumley Theater. All screenings are free and open to the public.  

Screenings will be accompanied by Q&A’s and a series of lectures, workshops and roundtables.

ILFF’s mission is two-fold. It aims to promote powerful films that speak to contemporary socio-political issues, and to bring the experience and knowledge of a diverse group of filmmakers to the forefront of the IU and Bloomington community, according to the ILFF website

IU Media School doctoral students Mallika Khanna and Cole Nelson helped curate this event, with support from IU Cinema, Black Film Center and Archive, College Arts and Humanities Institute and the Center for Documentary Research and Practice.
