The Film Lounge is a television series that showcases short, independent films by Iowa artists. Each one-hour episode includes a collection of films 2-20 minutes in length representing a range of artistic forms from documentary to experimental, narrative to animation; filmmakers discussing their work as an introduction to each film; and a Spotlight Feature highlighting active filmmaking projects in our state.

The series is produced by Iowa PBS in partnership with the Iowa Arts Council and Produce Iowa, both divisions of the Iowa Department of Cultural. Program objectives include highlighting art and experimental films by underserved Iowa artists; elevating the process of filmmaking as an art form; recognizing the contributions of filmmaking to the economic and cultural vitality of Iowa; and sharing stories important to Iowans.
