Update on Heartland Film Festival Films

It has only been short time since this year’s Heartland Film Festival ended and we already have great updates on many 2012 films, along with another past selection:

Wreck-It Ralph is a Truly Moving Picture!

One word the Truly Moving Picture Award jury kept using at this screening was “creative.” The way Ralph’s video game world was actualized was an impressive achievement with plenty of warmth. For many members, certain elements of the film brought back memories of The Wizard of Oz and Toy Story. Even though this isn’t a film our jury thought would be intended for adults, at the end Ralph won them over thanks to its sweet story about learning how to be okay with who you are.

Spielberg’s Lincoln Wins the Truly Moving Picture Award!

Our jury was completely floored by Lincoln. They loved how real it felt and how human the movie portrayed Abraham Lincoln, especially the way he told stories to his colleagues. The technical achievements to the accuracy to the time “brought the era to life.” One jury member said Lincoln was a “powerful story of courage and determination.” This is easily one of the most beloved movies the Truly Moving Pictures Award jury has seen in 2012.

5 Reasons To Attend the Heartland Film Festival

By: Nichole C. Davis It’s Heartland Film Festival time again! What a great time it is. With 119 films to choose from, the options are endless. So many movies, so little time to see them…

HFF Interview: Walk Tall

One of the biggest surprises of the year is the short “Wall Tall”. A short film about improving one’s posture seems like it would be a judging lecture instead of a silly exploration of a fascinating man. George Weedon was an Olympic gymnast in 1948 and today he teaches others about how to stay physically fit. Director Kate Sullivan tells his story with warmth and creativity. When she talked with us, Kate explained how she found George and what it took to make the really fun final scene. But before that, Kate wanted to say a few words to you!

HFF Interview: Caris’ Peace

Not many people know the name Caris Corfman, but her grace and talent enamored all of those who worked with her. Caris was a working actress in film, television and theatre before she was diagnosed with a brain tumor that cost Caris her short term memory. Director Gaylen Ross made a heartwarming documentary showing return to her return to her craft when she made a one-woman show about her life. We were able to talk to Gaylen about what it was like to film with Caris and what was the most important way to tell her story.

2012 Grand Prize Winners Announced

The Heartland Film Festival celebrated and honored the world’s most talented and inspiring independent filmmakers during the 21st Annual Heartland Film Festival Awards Ceremony at the Old National Centre last night.

Caris’ Peace Director, Neuroscientists to Host Discussion at 10/26 Screening

Caris Corfman was a brilliant graduate of the Yale School of Drama on the brink of stardom, acting opposite Ian Holm in the dramatic film Dreamland or in the original Broadway cast of “Amadeus” with Ian McKellen and Tim Curry, when a brain tumor left her without short-term memory. Robbed of her ability to learn, recall and recite lines, or even to know what play she’s in, Caris was swiftly forced to recognize that her career was over.

Auralex Acoustics Completes Heartland Truly Moving Pictures’ Screening Room

What began with speakers brought in from home with a pull-up screen has turned into a state-of-the-art space with projection equipment, surround sound and custom lighting. Although the room looked amazing, one thing was missing: Acoustical sound treatment! Our friends at Auralex Acoustics came in and set us up with all the right treatments to give our guests the best moviegoing experience possible.

HFF Interview: Julian Higgins

The 2012 Heartland Film Festival is underway. We thought we’d step back a year and collect some insight from Julian Higgins, director of the Vision Award for Best Short Film winner, “Thief”.
