Indianapolis, Indiana – Cinephiles are making their way to Indianapolis for the 32nd annual Heartland International Film Festival, which kicks off on Thursday and continues through the following Sunday, October 15th.

At the beginning of this year, MovieMaker Magazine included the 11-day festival as one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World to attend.

The phrase “You can’t look away” will serve as the event’s theme in 2023.

Over 120 films from all over the world will be screened at the festival, which is hosted by Heartland Film. You can watch big, exciting movies, films that are specifically relevant to Indiana, brand new releases, and after some of the showings, you can even talk to the moviemakers about their work.

There are five theaters in and around Indianapolis that are showing the movies. It is widely acknowledged that the Kan-Kan Cinema & Restaurant is among the very best.

The Kan-Kan, which can be found at 1258 Windsor Street, is a unique venue that shows movies and serves cuisine. Due to the widespread acclaim for the restaurant’s cuisine, it was recognized as one of the top new establishments in 2022.

At the Kan-Kan, they will be screening five films that were featured in the Cannes Film Festival in addition to a unique documentary titled “Black Barbie,” which tells the story of the very first Black Barbie doll.

In addition, there will be a special screening of the film “Foe,” which stars Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal, both of whom are nominated for Academy Awards.

Thursday marks the beginning of the 32nd annual Heartland International Film Festival, which will get off with an exclusive screening of the documentary “The Lionheart” at Newfields.
