Heartland Film Festival – Nurturing Independent Filmmakers

The Heartland Film Festival remains the flagship event of Heartland Truly Moving Pictures. This annual 10-day celebration of film is the place where Heartland honors independent filmmakers and helps promote the movies they make – films that engage, inspire and educate audience members of all ages.

To make a greater impact, Heartland must continue to invest in the Heartland Film Festival. Your support makes this vibrant, nationally renowned event possible.

The Heartland Film Festival Awards Gala
The Awards Gala presents more than $100,000 annually to recognize outstanding, independent films with positive messages. Your contribution provides support for the Awards Gala and excellence in filmmaking both nationally and internationally.

Marketing and Advertising
Your support is vital to expanding marketing and advertising to help increase attendance at all Festival screenings and events and grow national awareness of Heartland Truly Moving Pictures.

Your contribution helps support the expanding Festival attendance that requires larger venues and additional theaters to accommodate ever-increasing audiences.

Your contribution will allow Heartland’s website provide more personal interaction among Heartland followers and opportunities for users to dialogue with filmmakers; raise awareness and sustain relationships with supporters through social media outlets; and expand upon the trend toward online giving.
