Hobnobben celebrates the art of film and filmmaking, featuring an eclectic mix of international, regional, student and locally produced films. This year’s festival features 77 films from 12 different countries chosen from among 175 submissions and other film sources. Twenty-two of the selected films have a Hoosier connection, and nearly one third are from women filmmakers. This year, to enhance your moviegoing experience, short films have been grouped into viewing blocks according to content/theme (rather than by awards category). We hope this change enhances your enjoyment of the festival. Note: All films in a particular viewing block are listed with the same start time.
Come celebrate the kickoff of Hobnobben 2019 with three big events on one night! It all starts with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and general “hobnobbing,” followed by awards for the best Narrative Feature, Documentary, Short, Hoosier Spirit and Student Film. This year, we’re also announcing runners up! Then grab some popcorn and settle back for our opening night film, Before You Know It, presented by Punch Films.
