The historical city of Lincoln is in Lincolnshire, within the East Midlands of England and it has a population of around 100,000. Lincoln developed from the Roman town of Lindum Colonia and the major landmarks include Lincoln Cathedral, a fine example of English Gothic architecture, and Lincoln Castle, an 11th-century Norman castle. The city is also home to the University of Lincoln our host and sponsor for Indie-Lincs. Indie-Lincs will take place on the University campus in the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) during February and films will screen in the main theatre (pictured) and other venues. We look forward to welcoming successfully shortlisted films and their filmmakers to our beautiful city.
