Film & Acting Workshops

The Heartland Film Institute offers year-round programming to educate aspiring filmmakers in the art and craft of creating films that celebrate the best of the human spirit.

Through the Institute, Heartland conducts workshops and symposia to high school and college students and the general public, offering opportunities to explore all aspects of filmmaking in-depth. The Institute provides the necessary educational tools and resources for filmmakers to improve their craft as well as networking opportunities with industry professionals and aspiring filmmakers at all levels.

The Institute’s workshops are held in Indianapolis at the IUPUI Campus Center throughout the year. In addition, an extended workshop is held each year at the Heartland Film Festival. All workshops are streamed live here for those that cannot attend.
