The 9th INDIs Film Festival presents a broad and exciting programme of films including several fascinating documentaries including the hard-hitting social commentary of The 8th about the repeal of the 8th amendment in Ireland, Coded Bias about the gender and racial bias found in AI and facial recognition algorithms and You Cannot Kill David Arquette, an access-all-areas expose of the actor’s attempt to be accepted back into professional wrestling.
Other films include the darkly comic The Columnist about online trolling and the consequences of free speech, UK indie director Marc Price’s sci-fi epic Dune Drifter which was completed during the first COVID-19 lockdown and Here Are the Young Men, a visceral drama about a group of teen friends whose lives spiral out of control.
Socrates and Ellie & Abbie (and Ellie’s Dead Aunt) are both amazing LGBTQ+ films tackling the issues of sexuality and identity in very different ways, while the high school musical comedy drama Best Summer Ever was made by a fully integrated cast and crew of people with and without disabilities.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday 25 March with films available to rent from 29 March. Most of the films available on the Player can be rented at any time during INDIs 2021, with a small number of exceptions. Some of the films will have a maximum number of rentals available.
