The new film Drunktown's finest playing Heartland Film Festival

Drunktown’s Finest

"Drunktown's Finest" is the Native American "Crash," and I mean that in a good way. It's a touching, harrowing portrait of life on the reservation.

Where the Road Runs Out

"Where the Road Runs Out" features a message of transformation and returning to one's roots to find their core self will resonate with many of the audience.


"Violet" is a departure for director Luiso Berdejo. But it clearly embodies his distinctive style, and his voice resonates loudly with this indie gem.

Uzumasa Limelight

“Uzumasa Limelight" is a moving piece of cinema that charms and shines the spotlight on one of Japan’s premier Kirareyaku artists, and its ending is beautiful.
