In April of this year, we held our very first HFF Night at the JCC with our friends at the Arthur M. Glick JCC. We’re partnering up again for another HFF Night at the JCC during their annual Festival of Books and Arts. Once again, we’ll show three shorts straight from the 2011 Heartland Film Festival (listed below) AND one of the filmmakers will be present and we’ll Skype in the filmmakers following each film for a brief Q&A. Remember that as you watch the film and get those questions ready!
Date: Saturday, November 19, 2011
Time: 7 pm
Ticket Prices: $5 general public / $3 JCC members
Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.JCCindy.org, at the JCC or by calling (317) 251-9467. Tickets will be sold at the door. Hope you can join us!
