INDIANAPOLIS – After hosting the Heartland Film Festival on the south and north sides of Indianapolis for several years, Heartland Truly Moving Pictures announced today that it will move from the south side to the northwest side for the 21st Annual Heartland Film Festival. Films will continue to be shown at AMC Castleton Square 14 and now in its new location, AMC Traders Point 12. The 10-day festival will take place October 18-27. The decision, which organizers believe will increase opportunities for festival-goers, was made after the organization struggled to increase ticket sales and revenue in its south side venue, making it impossible to financially sustain a south side presence.
This year, with a record-breaking 1,240 film submissions, the 21st Annual Heartland Film Festival will feature more movie choices than ever before. The selection committee reviewed each film and has selected the “best of the best” in new, independent films from all over the world that will move and inspire people, and change the way they look at the world.
