To celebrate Heartland Film’s 30th anniversary, Shine Global has generously partnered with us to present a selection of titles showcased at past editions of the Heartland International Film Festival and Indy Shorts! These titles include WAR/DANCE (Oscar Nominee, 2007 Heartland Film Festival Crystal Heart Award Winner), INOCENTE (Oscar Winner, 2012 Heartland Film Festival Best Short Winner), and THE ELECTION EFFECT: WESLEY (2019 Indy Short Official Selection).


Shine Global is a non-profit media company that produces inspiring films and compelling content about children and their families. Through tailored distribution and outreach, they connect with audiences in communities, classrooms, museums, and on capitol hill as part of a powerful engagement campaign to encourage social change. A portion of ticket proceeds from this series will be shared with Shine Global.

Set in war-ravaged Northern Uganda, the Oscar®-nominated WAR DANCE will touch your heart with a real-life story about a group of children whose love of music brings joy, excitement, and hope back into their poverty-stricken lives. Nancy, Domenic, and Rose, three children who have suffered horrific brutalities, momentarily forget their struggles as they participate in music, song, and dance at their school. Invited to compete in a prestigious music festival in their nation’s capitol, their historic journey is a stirring tale about the power of the human spirit to triumph against tremendous odds.
