Best Local Film Festival

Heartland Film Festival

Chalk up another win for Heartland Film Festival, an annual showcase for uplifting films that awards some of the biggest prizes in the world and makes a point of treating filmmakers with style and projecting their work in the best possible conditions. Last year's winners were Cairo 678, a drama about sexual harassment in Egypt that took home $100,000; biking documentary Rising from Ashes ($25,000); and the animated short film Head over Heels ($10,000), which was nominated for a 2012 Academy Award. This year's festival runs Oct. 17-26, and keep an eye on Heartland's website for programs throughout the rest of the year, including First Friday screenings in its Fountain Square headquarters.
