TRAVEL & MORE
TRAVELING TO IOWA CITY It's easy to get to Iowa City because the city is located at the crossroads of two major highway systems: the east-west Interstate 80 which crosses the breadth of the continent, and Interstate 380/Highway 218, known as the Avenue of the Saints because it connects Minneapolis/St. Paul and St. Louis.

AIRPORTS The closest is the Eastern Iowa Airport, 20 minutes from the festival venues. Moline Airport is about a one-hour drive and Des Moines Airport is about two hours away.
Our flagship venue, the Englert Theatre, is on the National Register of Historic Places. With a compact, pedestrian-friendly, and historic downtown, Iowa City is a perfect spot for an independent film festival. The festival also uses the Iowa City Public Library which has superb facilities, and the next-door Sheraton Iowa City and the ultra-modern boutique hotelVetro.
