Indianapolis International Film Festiva (IIFF) – Only six years old and already pulling in some pretty notable films. Opening night had sneak peak of “500 Days of Summer” and last Friday there was a double feature of “Best Worst Movie” and “Troll 2.” Some films I’m looking forward to seeing are “The Dungeon Masters” tonight at 9 PM, “Garbage Dreams” tomorrow at 7:30 pm, and a documentary about the Showbiz Pizza band, “The Rock-Afire Explosion” on Thursday at 7 pm. Films show throughout the day now through July 25 at the IMA. Full IIFF schedule.

This in mind, I’m going to have to rethink the compulsive popcorn eating I planned for IIFF.
