As we try to do with all the locally produced film festivals, we’ve gathered a whole bunch of online trailers for some of the feature films at this weekend’s Indie Spirit Film Festival in Colorado Springs (below) to help you decide which films to see. The selection is truly dizzying (there are over 90 shorts and features!) and reflects the truly diverse tastes of this community. Everything from vampire comedies to holocaust documentaries is represented here. We hope you make it out to support and enjoy this growing part of our local culture. If you’ve never been to or heard of the ISFF, here’s a little info from their website:

ISFF has showcased an average of over 90 films from all over the globe, covering a variety of subjects and genres in its first two years. The festival has quickly become Colorado Springs’ largest film festival, with numerous filmmakers and film fans attending screenings, Q & A sessions, filmmaker panels, parties and receptions.

Boasting a broad, unrestricted selection of films, ISFF presents genre-specific awards, as well as Best Short, Feature, Documentary and Festival Director’s Choice. Several films from previous years have achieved further success on the festival circuit and many films from the first two years are available on DVD.

Now in its 3rd year, the 2010 Indie Spirit Film Festival will take place April 23-25, 2010.
