Watch an indie movie in Cedar Rapids

The Cedar Rapids Independent Film Festival began in 2001, took a break during the pandemic, and is back for its 20th year. Photo: CRIFF.

A record-setting 99 films were submitted for consideration to this year’s 20th annual Cedar Rapids Independent Film Festival. Of those, 51 were chosen to be screened April 14-16 at the Collins Road Theaters, at 1462 Twixt Town Road in Marion (where they drizzle real butter on the popcorn).

Submissions came from across the country, each with its own connections to Iowa, and are eligible to win various festival awards. The screenings, as well as Saturday’s Eddy Awards Ceremony, are open to the public, but you’ll need tickets first.
