About Interrobang Film Festival

The term “interrobang” indicates a non-standard punctuation mark in an exclamatory manner, as in, “What are you doing?!” This mixture of query and interjection leaves room for reflection, contemplation, and exploration.

Since 2007, the Des Moines Arts Festival has presented the Interrobang Film Festival as part of its three-day lineup bringing the art of film to Festival guests June 22-24.  IFF is part juried competition, part public screening, and part workshop. Cinema enthusiasts and curious newcomers alike can experience curated screenings from artists around the globe.
