An annual celebration of independent film in Indianapolis, the Heartland Film Festival aims to showcase films that inspire both filmmakers and audiences. To celebrate our 24th year as a world-renowned film festival, we hope to raise $24,000 for our Filmmakers Fund, which allows us to reach out to some of the best filmmakers in the industry.
With your generous support, Heartland Film can continue to bring the best talent in independent film to the Midwest. Your donation will go directly towards the operating costs of bringing filmmakers, both international ($2,500 average) and domestic ($1,500 average) talent, to the Heartland Film Festival, Heartland Film Roadshow screenings, mini-festivals, master classes and other special events.
Once a film is selected for the Festival, filmmakers become part of the Heartland Film family. Through the Filmmakers Fund, we are able to facilitate the unique experience of connecting filmmakers and audiences through a mutual love of meaningful storytelling. In a film festival setting, filmmakers are able to see the effects of their film outside the screen and audience members are able to engage with filmmakers about the creative process.
Every donation –no matter how big or small–helps Heartland Film continue its mission. To support the art of independent filmmaking, select a donation level and receive special perks as a reward for your generosity. Thank you for supporting Heartland Film!
We have collected $15,105 of our $24,000 target. It is 62.94% of our goal for the 24 Filmmakers in 24 Days campaign!
