Heartland International Film Festival

Indianapolis, IN 46203


Indiana’s largest and longest-running film festival will celebrate its 29th anniversary this October across Indianapolis! Since the inaugural Festival in 1992, Heartland has grown from a 4-day event with less than 20 films to an 11-day celebration featuring more than 100 independent films, 200 visiting filmmakers and 300 film screenings.

We’re proud to announce the full lineup for the 29th Annual Heartland International Film Festival featuring 76 films, 23 premieres, live virtual filmmaker Q&As, and special events like our Opening and Closing Night with a drive-thru red-carpet!

This year’s theme is The Full Spectrum of Film to celebrate the diverse film genres, stories and perspectives showcased throughout the festival. Whether you’re looking for an investigative documentary, a quirky comedy, a frightening horror, or even a toe taping musical, you can be sure to find the perfect film among the 75 films featured throughout the festival.
