Mission / description We are the Alternative for Independent, Underground and Experimental Film and Video. The Indie Gathering exists to showcase the independent filmmaker. Our mission is to inspire and encourage film makers through a competitive showcase. Filmmakers participate in their screenings and after the films speak with audience members who seek a closer look into the creative process.

With competitions for films, scripts, film scoring, special FX makeup, stunts/fight scenes, and acting/monologue, The Indie Gathering has a place for everyone! The weekend consists of three screening rooms, a convention/vendors room, film seminars/lectures, competitions, networking parties and more! If you are involved in, or interested in, any aspect of filmmaking, this festival is for you.

The film fest organizers are welcoming and truly dedicated to making the event a fulfilling experience. Your badge has a color indicator which designate your role in film (e.g. producer, actor, director, screen writer, etc) which provides an easy opening to strike up conversations with fellow attendees. This is my second year going and I took opportunity to catch up with people I met in the prior year and make new contacts this year. I did give four out of five stars for the atmosphere. The hotel bar is a fine place to have a drink and mingle, but I advise going elsewhere for food. Our group ended up going to the Hudson town center and had a much better meal elsewhere. I had a hard time choosing between attending seminars, chatting with people and attending screening. The panel discussions on acting, directing, sound engineering, etc. got my attention and I walked away with useful information. It was a long drive from Philadelphia, but I'm glad I did it.

Ray and Christina do a bang up job in Hudson, Ohio! I'm proud to say I was born and raised right near there also. I have attended a lot of different festivals as of late all over the country, and I say that this years lot of films were absolutely wonderful at the Indie Gathering this year! Hats off to Hudson, Ohio! Loved the friendly atmosphere, also! Around 4 years ago

This is a great festival. I really enjoyed seeing the actors compete. Maybe next year I'll do it. I met a lot of really cool people and filmmakers who genuinely seemed interested in meeting me as an actress, not just wanting to meet other filmmakers. Great films and panels. Definitely recommend it. Sarah Around 4 years ago

This was a great festival for film makers like us, who work on little to no budget. We were able to screen our films to an attentive audience and see a wide variety of films. Ernie Around 4 years ago
