Get ready to experience the Midwest's best explosion of film at the third annual Hobnobben Film Festival, June 7th-10th, 2018! Ft. Wayne is a cool, little city with a great art 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 Ft. Wayne venues hosting the Hobnobben Film Festival in 2018 are Cinema Center, the Spectator Lounge and Parkview Physicians Group ArtsLab
