Heartland Film Festival

October 17, 2012

Oct. 18-27

Various locations

There’s lots to see—and sift through—at the annual cinematic celebration. But how to pick? Click here for some of my recommendations (My favorite: “Starry, Starry Night”). But don’t treat mine as an exhaustive list. The two dozen or so films I screened are only a small part of the overall festival. Talk to your fellow audience members. Do a little Internet searching. Or just take a chance on something you are otherwise unlikely to see at the multiplex—like a documentary about trash truck choreography. Details here.
