16th Annual Gadabout Film Fest

For 16 years the Gadabout has strived to curate the best possible short film program year after year. Working to create an evening that is inspiring and fun. The Gadabout is passionate about short films, and being able to share their creativity, their imagination, and their ability to tell a story in a little amount of time.

Presented by the festival's curators, the program will tour across the US, Canada, and Europe. Popping up at Universities, venues, art centers, back yards, and more. Creating an evening where short films are seen on a big screen with large sound, as intended.

Above all else, the screening is fun, well-paced, and diverse. Packed with narratives, animations, documentaries, and experimental shorts, ranging from extremely funny or silly to smart and thought-provoking.

The Gadabout is a touring film festival, having screened in over 15 countries, 45 states, and over 200 cities, but it's Bloomington that they call home. That's why this kick-off event is their most special!
