The Heartland Film Festival started in 1992 as a small event in Indianapolis and has expanded over time to become one of the fastest growing film festivals in the country. Today, the annual film festival is a ten-day event full of independent films, a variety of special events for film enthusiasts of all ages and a one-of-a-kind experience in one of the Midwest’s most inviting cities.
In 1991, a group of visionaries united to create a unique film festival to honor beautifully made films that celebrate the positive aspects of life called the Heartland Film Festival.
Each October, the Heartland Film Festival screens independent films from around the world and presents more than $150,000 in cash prizes to the Festival’s top-judged submissions. This year, The Independent Critic is not only covering the Heartland Film Festival but had the good fortune to serve on one of the festival's juries. I'll be posting reviews, interviews and other special features right here throughout the 2012 Heartland Film Festival.
This year, I reviewed every Heartland film from A-Z!
