Join us on Friday, August 31st from 8-10 p.m. at FLAT12 Bierwerks for An After Hours Short Short Film Festival, presented in collaboration with The Onion / A.V. Club as a fundraiser for Heartland Truly Moving Pictures. This will be your chance to sample beer, pick up a copy of The Onion and talk movies–so it’s bound to be a seriously fun evening.
Here is the line-up:
The First Anders (9 minutes; 2011 Heartland Film Festival Award Winner) – A well-meaning, but ultimately accidental father tries to teach his artistic and troubled young son a valuable lesson. This story spans over one thousand years of Danish history and countless generations of the family Andersen.
A Finger, Two Dots Then Me (8 minutes; 2011 Heartland Film Festival Award Winner) – A spoken-word piece based on a popular poem by renowned modern poet Derrick Brown. The film takes a dramatic look at death, life and love through the eyes of Brown.
Abuelas (9 minutes; 2011 Heartland Film Festival Award Winner) – In a small apartment in Buenos Aires, an old woman eagerly awaits the birth of her grandchild and all the joys of becoming a grandmother. However, horrific circumstances mean that she will be forced to wait for over 30 years.
The Archive (8 minutes; 2009 Official Selection) – True dedication is evident in the form of Paul Mawhinney who has given his entire life to amassing what has become the world’s largest record collection. Paul has over a million albums in his possession, including the world’s first flat record made in 1881. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry, Paul is being forced to sell his most prized collection.
Plus, there will be fantastic prizes handed out, including 10-packs of tickets to the 2012 Heartland Film Festival and event tickets through LiveNation, courtesy of The Onion!
Tickets are just $5 and are available now.

Our view of the Cultural Trail.
As you may recall, in September we moved into our new digs in fabulous Fountain Square. We’ve been enjoying the many great dining options, people watching on the Cultural Trail and getting to know our friendly and creative neighbors. Located in the Murphy Art Center we have the honor of being surrounded by brilliant artists in a buzzing environment anchored by my personal favorite night out in Indianapolis–First Fridays. We are excited to announce that Friday, February 3, will be our first involvement in the city’s monthly art tour!
We will be hanging out in our ground floor space from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. We’ll have beer from Upland Brewing Company to go along with multiple screenings of the 2011 Heartland Film Festival Award-winning short The First Anders. This is a great opportunity to welcome the arts community, neighborhood and city into our new home, and we look forward to celebrating with friends, old and new.
If you have never been to a First Friday, you are in for a real treat. You should expect a night full of wonderful art, people, conversation, food and drink at galleries and studios all around the city. It is a celebration of the best this city has to offer, and the timing could not be better. With thousands of visitors in town for the Big Game and Fountain Square as one of the Super Celebration Sites, it’s sure to be one exciting night. We hope to see you there!
P.S. Before heading out, make sure you are familiar with these transportation and parking guidelines. Know Before You Go!
