Heartland Community College will be showcasing student film makers during its first ever virtual film festival this spring. 

Student and alumni film submissions are now being accepted for consideration. The screening of selected submissions will be held via Zoom on the evening of Thursday, May 6. 

A panel of Heartland professors will review the submissions, assemble a program of finalists for screening, and determine the top ranking films. Creators of the stand-out submissions will be awarded.

All films need to be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST on April 26, 2021 to be considered for this year’s festival.
