About the festival

Jerome resident Toni Ross founded the Jerome Indie Film & Music Festival in honor of her second child, who passed away unexpectedly at 7 months of age. Of the motivation behind her founding the festival, Toni said, “I so dearly love the Jerome artistic community and wanted to create something good from this tragedy in my favorite town. Every year it is my honor to present the Rising Spirit Award to the most inspired film or individual of the festival, in honor of my beloved Trey.”
