“I love being a filmmaker in Indiana,” Hannah Lindgren says, as she notes the abundance of stories to be told, the collaborative spirit of the filmmakers here and the opportunity to share the real Midwest experience with others.
The Joe & Carol Trimmer Indiana Film Fund was established in 2020 with a generous $50,000 gift from long-time Indiana Humanities board member Joe Trimmer to provide more opportunities for filmmakers like Hannah Lindgren to tell Indiana stories. Like us, Joe is well aware of the vibrant film community and how important it is for Hoosiers to see themselves, and their neighbors, represented on the big screen.
Thanks to Joe’s incredible generosity, we have taken the first step to making sure we can support Indiana filmmakers for years to come—but we need your help. You can help us provide more opportunities for Indiana filmmakers to discover and tell our stories by joining our matching campaign to raise an additional $50,000 over the next six months. Watch this video to find out why grants like ours are critical to Indiana filmmakers.
We’ve already raised more than $10,000 toward that goal! Donate today to the Joe & Carol Trimmer Indiana Film Fund and you can play a critical role in ensuring more Indiana stories make it to the big screen.
