The Heartland International Film Festival Goes Online

Oct 7, 2020

The Heartland International Film Festival is mostly virtual this year due to the pandemic, with a hybrid of online and in-person screenings, including drive-ins. Part of the appeal of a film festival is being around other fans, but the convenience of watching from home could bring in a new audience.

We talk to someone leading the festival about how they plan on making it work. And we talk to a group of filmmakers about what it's like to make and release a movie during a pandemic.

Produced by Drew Daudelin.
