Every October, the Heartland Film Festival gives moviegoers access to more than 150 visiting independent filmmakers from all over the world and showcases more than 130 independent films over 11 days of red carpet premieres, events, exclusive parties, and hundreds of screenings across Indianapolis.

Heartland Film Festival ticket sales account for less than 20 percent of Heartland Film’s annual operating costs. Your support through a membership or donation allows us to continue exhibiting entertaining films that do more than just entertain. As a thank you for your support, you will receive benefits designed to make your film-going experience more enjoyable throughout the year.

If you are already a card-carrying Heartland Film member, please consider making a tax deductible donation. Your support is vital to the future of our organization and independent film in Indianapolis.
