Harrison County Arts to screen original short films created by Hoosier filmmakers

Harrison County Arts will host a special screening of original films on Wednesday, May 11th at 6:30PM as part of the nine-city Waterways Film Tour. The tour features six short documentary films funded by Indiana Humanities and focused on the state’s waterways.

CLICK HERE to register for this free event.

The films are part of the Unearthed initiative, Indiana Humanities’ multiyear environmental theme, and feature stories from across the state told by Hoosiers and highlighting their relationships with water. From improving the health of the Blue River to support the hellbender salamander habitat to the fading art of net making, the films explore issues of access and conservation, as well as the unique cultures that spring up around Indiana’s waterways.

“We’re excited to support these films that explore our relationships with Indiana’s waterways, as individuals and as communities,” said Megan Telligman, Indiana Humanities director of programs. “We hope this work sparks conversation about our understanding of the natural world and humanity’s legacy on our planet.”
The films included in the statewide tour are The Net Makers by Hannah Lindgren; Hellbender in the Blue by Katelyn Calhoun; Land Val·ues by Johnny Klemme and Ben Massie; Cast Out by Will Wertz; Calumet: The Region’s River by Samuel Love and Raymar Brunson; and Water Scouts by Turner Fair and Anna Zanoni.

Screenings are free and open to the public. While advance registration is requested, a ticket does not guarantee a seat. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to start time. Select events will also include a panel featuring the filmmakers prior to the screening.
The films are recommended for viewers over the age of 12.

Complimentary snacks and drinks will be offered at most locations, with beer available to those 21 and over courtesy Metazoa Brewing.

Attendees are encouraged to follow Indiana Humanities on social media at @INhumanities for details and visit the venue’s website to review COVID-19 protocols closer to the event date.
