Fresh off live streaming the 14th Annual Indie Grits Film Fest as a free nine-day pop-up event March 28 – April 5, we are continuing forward with new, pop-up film blocks curated by some of our most excellent Indie Grits alumni right HERE. Follow us on Instagram for up to date details or check back at the link above for a continuously updated schedule.

Indie Grits Labs is a non-profit organization that works to serve communities through media education, artist driven projects, and the Indie Grits Festival in Columbia, South Carolina.


Dear Community,

In this time of heightened precaution, and following local, state, and national guidelines, Indie Grits Labs has chosen to close all public programming until further notice. All public educational programs, public exhibitions, and events have been cancelled. We feel that these measures are in the best interest of our community, keeping our patrons safe.

As a non-profit, this decision was very difficult for us, and we anticipate some difficult financial constraints in the coming months. Currently we are moving our programs into a virtual space including all Fellowship activities, a newly curated live stream screening series (see above), media literacy programs, and our Festival Livestream Pop-up (see above). If you are able, we encourage you to continue renewing memberships and making donations.

We are monitoring the situation and will continue to respond in the interest of our staff, filmmakers, students, artists and the community. Please check back at our website for up-to-date information about closures. You will continue communicating via weekly emails and social media. We appreciate your patience and your financial support as we manage these changes.

Thank you for your continued support.
