About the Institute
Outreach has always been a critical component of Heartland’s work. Spreading the power of great films to the youth of today encourages the audiences of tomorrow.
At the same time, Heartland’s outreach efforts provide schools and youth organizations with an additional tool they can use to achieve their educational, leadership and character development goals. In recent years, outreach efforts at Heartland Truly Moving Pictures have been coordinated through the Heartland Institute. The Institute offers year-round film and acting workshops for aspiring filmmakers and students of film, coordinates the Heartland High School Film Competition as well as the organization’s innovative film and literacy program, the Finding Inspiration in Literature & Movies (F.I.L.M.) Project.
