The Heartland International Film Festival has once again partnered with the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge to showcase the slate of 2022 finalists and winners!

The EDFC founder Nic Novicki will join us in-person to present this year’s lineup! Nic Novicki is an actor, comedian and producer whose television credits include the following: Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, AXS Gotham Comedy Live, Jack and Triumph, The Neighbors, Austin and Alley, Private Practice and Drop Dead Diva.

Created in 2013 by Nic Novicki and launched in 2014, the challenge gives filmmakers – with and with-out disabilities – the opportunity to collaborate to tell unique stories that showcase disability in its many forms, inviting aspiring storytellers to creatively write, produce and complete short films. The week-long filmmaking contest – open to all – provides a platform for new voices in the entertainment industry.

This is your chance to see the shorts and meet Nic! Heartland International Film Festival is offering a FREE screening of the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge finalists on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The screening will take place at Deboest Lecture Hall at Newfields (4000 N. Michigan Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46208).
