VIRTUAL BEST OF FEST: MARCH 26-28
Hello!

The 2021 Virtual Best of Fest tickets are now on sale! For the last eight years, we've brought some of our favorite Heartland International Film Festival films back to the beautiful Historic Artcraft Theatre in Franklin, Indiana. This year, we are still partnering with the Artcraft, but virtually! Running Friday, March 26, through Sunday, March 28, you can watch all of these incredible films at home on your own time! We've also added a special video to give you a behind the scenes look at the Artcraft with their Executive Director Rob Shilts!

Virtual tickets are available starting today, and proceeds will be split between Heartland Film, the Historic Artcraft Theatre and the participating filmmakers. Thanks for your support, and happy festing!
