Landlocked Film Festival celebrates independent filmmakers and scriptwriters, providing large, enthusiastic audiences and superb educational events. Founded in 2006, this competitive festival – which features narrative, documentary, animation and student films from the United States and worldwide – brings thousands of people into the pedestrian-friendly heart of downtown Iowa City in late August to experience independent cinema, meet visiting filmmakers, and learn the crafts of filmmaking and scriptwriting. The historic Englert Theatre is the flagship venue, with multiple screenings and workshops taking place within walking distance.
