One year after making its world premiere at the Heartland Film Festival, Paradise Recovered is returning to Indiana to make it’s theatrical debut! The 2010 Official Selection premieres on November 20 at 3 p.m. at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in Bloomington, Indiana.
Shot entirely on location in Bloomington and Lawrence County, Indiana and in Austin, Texas, Paradise Recovered lightheartedly but realistically addresses hard questions about faith, tolerance, and spiritual abuse in modern culture.
Director Storme Wood, writer Andie Redwine (from the scriptwriting workshop!) and actors Heather Wallis and Dane Hurlburt will be on hand for a Q&A following the screening. If that isn’t enough for you, they’ll be hanging out at FARM Bloomington’s The Roof Cellar after the event. They’ll have light munchies (you’re welcome to order off the menu!) and a cash bar. All the day’s events can be found on the Paradise Recovered blog.
Tickets are $10/$ 8 for seniors and students and can be purchased through the Buskirk-Chumley box office.
Help us spread the word and pack that premiere!

“Do not cast the movie before you write the story.”
“You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head…”
“Write as quickly as possible. Edit little. You may discover a treasure. Let your characters talk to you.”
We are fortunate to have a wealth of amazing talent connected to us here at Heartland. Over the past 20 years we have amassed wonderful relationships with extraordinary people who have skills and expertise in every discipline within filmmaking.
One of those extraordinary people is Andie Redwine, writer of the 2010 Heartland Film Festival Official Selection, Paradise Recovered. Andie taught Heartland’s latest Film and Acting Workshop at the IUPUI Campus Center, Scriptwriting with Andie Redwine.
As President and CEO Jeff Sparks introduced Redwine before the workshop, he pointed out that studies show a glass of red wine can be good for the heart, and the same is true for Andie Redwine. A dose of her presence is good for you – and your scriptwriting. Using clips from other 2010 Heartland Film Festival films, Andie led the audience through the rules of scriptwriting. Sharing quotes and insight from other filmmakers, Andie brought a wide assortment of information and inspiration to the table, offering something for everyone.
With the Heartland Twitter feed in constant motion throughout the workshop, aspiring scriptwriters across the globe were able to take part in this thoroughly enjoyable workshop as well. Not only was our Twitter feed going at full speed, but the cameras were on and rolling. Stay tuned for the video of this amazing workshop in our Institute Archives in the very near future. It’s an experience not to be missed!
