blocknobben 2018

Friday, June 8 @ the Arts United Center

Film brings people together! And one of the Hobnobben Film Festival's favorite ways to connect our community is at Blocknobben, our free and family-friendly block party at the Arts United Center Plaza, starting Friday, June 8th at 6pm!

Grab a bite to eat at the food trucks, grab a beer from the local breweries present, buy a work from a local arts vendor, or just watch some great short films showing throughout the party.

Of course there will be music provided by local artists throughout the event. Come have fun with us at Blocknobben!



Get ready to experience the Midwest's best explosion of film at the third annual Hobnobben Film Festival, June 7th-10th, 2018! Fort Wayne is a cool little city with a great arts scene, a growing downtown busting at the seams with restaurants and bars, and because of Cinema Center (our stalwart parent organization), some of the most film-loving folks you will ever meet. At Hobnobben, we celebrate film with screenings of shorts and features from local, regional, national and international filmmakers! The festival plaza is all within walking distance from downtown eateries, recreation, bars and all festival-related events. The three Fort Wayne venues hosting the Hobnobben Film Festival in 2018 are Cinema Center, the Spectator Lounge, and Parkview Physicians Group ArtsLab
