This year nearly 150 filmmakers and talent are scheduled to attend the Heartland Film Festival. We want to ensure their entire stay is full of wonderful experiences, comfort, and style, which is why we choose to house nearly half of our guests in the Omni Severin Hotel—the exclusive hotel of the Heartland Film Festival—in downtown Indianapolis. Omni Hotels & Resorts are dedicated to giving their guests exclusive service and local experiences, and we know that our guests will get a true taste of Hoosier hospitality during their stay.
The Heartland Film Festival is all about engaging with talented filmmakers from around the world, and the Omni Severin Hotel makes that possible. Sponsored by the Omni Severin Hotel, the Sunday, Oct. 19 Filmmakers’ Brunch is the Festival’s best kept secret where you can chat with filmmakers over breakfast. Then every night, after the silver screen goes dark, you are invited to join us at the Festival’s official after-hours hangout at the Severin Bar. Mingle with fellow moviegoers and buy your favorite indie filmmaker a drink.
For more than 100 years, Omni Severin Hotel has stood as the longest-running luxury hotel in the heart of downtown. Beautifully restored as a landmark of the city’s diverse history, the downtown hotel offers the elegant grandeur of the early 1900s with modern amenities, personalized service and luxury appointments for their guests. The hotel is connected to Circle Centre Mall and the Indianapolis Convention Center via skywalks and is just a short walk to Lucas Oil Stadium, Bankers Life Fieldhouse and over 300 shops and restaurants. With so much to see and do, we trust the Omni Severin Hotel will complete our filmmaker’s ultimate Festival experience.
