Heartland Film Festival Interview: Bram Conjaerts, Director of “The Circle”

One of the most fascinating films of the festival has the most deceivingly simple names. “The Circle” is all about the people who happen to live upon one of the greatest scientific experiments in human history. The Large Hadron Collider races particles around at such an incredible speed in order to recreate the Big Bang, the origins of the universe. This is located 100 miles underground in Europe and director Bram Conjaerts talked to those on the surface to learn what they think of all of this.

We were thrilled to talk to Bram about the focus on the documentary, his history with the Large Hardon Collider and the documentaries that intrigue him.

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Matthias Zuder, Director of “Liquidation”

In just a few minutes, the Festival Award short film “Liquidation” can create discussions that will last for hours. In the film, a young couple are visiting his grandfather before he is punished for his Nazi involvement. There they are faced with a difficult moral decision.

We were able to talk with director Matthias Zuder about the audience reaction to that moral decision, the roles of Nazis in cinema and the humanity of the whole story.

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Alex Stonehill and Bradley Hutchinson, Co-Directors of Barzan

Barzan tells a story that you wish didn’t have to be true. Sam Malkandi was happily living with his family in Seattle when the government believed that he was connected with al-Qaeda after a footnote in the 9/11 Commission Report. Now with little understanding of how this all happened, his family was torn apart as they desperately try for justice.

Directors Alex Stonehill and Bradley Hutchinson were following this heartbreaking story as it developed and showed the world the results in this Festival Award-winning documentary. We were thrilled that Alex and Bradley were able to talk to us about the tone of this film, the moral difficulties and read at the very bottom of the article to hear about how the family is doing after the movie. (There are spoilers in the answer for the last question that is posted after the showtimes.)

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Erica Liu, Writer and Director of “Springtime”

When you look at the average ages of the movie protagonists, there is a miscalculated representation that everyone who goes on an emotional character arc is young. In “Springtime”, writer/director Erica Liu created the character…

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Daniel Patrick Carbone, Writer and Director of Hide Your Smiling Faces

Few films are able to capture the emotional realism of childhood. It’s a strange time that rarely fits into the normal structure of a movie, but Hide Your Smiling Faces is able to do something very special. When a death of a peer occurs in a small town, the kids are filled with an overflow of emotions they don’t understand. This movie is able to capture a very sympathetic and confusing time with an amazing amount of authority.

We are thrilled to be able to talk with writer/director Daniel Patrick Carbone about working with such young actors, using improvisation, and what first feature films have inspired him.

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Maggie Baird, Co-Writer and Lead Actress of Life Inside Out

From the early frames of the movie, it is obvious that Life Inside Out is a very personal story. Yet how far back that goes is rather surprising. Maggie Baird has been a working actress…

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Andrew Mudge, Director of “The Forgotten Kingdom”

In one of our Festival Award winning films, The Forgotten Kingdom, an aimless boy from Johannesburg travels back to his village in Lesotho when his father passes away. His journey is an incredible cinematic experience as we explore who Atang is and the majesty of Lesotho.

With a film so warm and authentic, it may be surprising to hear that writer/director Andrew Mudge is not from Africa. Andrew talks to us about the first time he traveled to Lesotho, the importance of quiet intensity and the influence of David Lynch.

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Jill D’Agnenica, Director of Life Inside Out

There is magic in music as it has the qualities to relax, inspire and sooth the soul. Music is in the heart of our Festival Award-winning narrative film, Life Inside Out, as a mother of three finds rebirth in her life when she picks up her old guitar and decides to try out songwriting at a local open-mic. When her emotionally frustrated son starts to join her, they experience a new bonding.

We were thrilled that director Jill D’Agnenica was able to talk with us about everyday inspiration of creativity, the power of Kickstarter and what it was like to work on the ABC show LOST.

Heartland Film Festival Interview: Matthew Moore, Director/Co-Writer of The Amber Amulet

Now more than ever, it feels we are surrounded by superheroes. They are always in the multiplex, comics are still popular and now they’re even on TV shows. “The Amber Amulet” is a Festival Award wining short film without any supernatural powers, but it has Liam, a young boy, who wants to be a hero in his own town. So he dons a thin mask and tries to help his neighbor from being so sad.

We were excited to be able to talk with Matthew Moore, the film’s director and co-writer, and ask him about this influence on the culture, the reality it is set in and how an acting background can help you as a director.
