Indiana Humanities seeks applications for the creation of high-quality short films (5 to 15 minutes) that invite Hoosiers to consider the stories of urban, rural and suburban Hoosiers. Our goal is to sponsor the creation of educational yet stimulating films that invite Hoosiers to think, read and talk about what unites and divides us across urban, rural and suburban boundaries.
The INseparable Film Project is a component of Indiana Humanities’ newest thematic initiative, which explores how Hoosiers and Americans have thought about urban, suburban and rural differences over time and how we think about them today. We hope to spark conversations about the ways the futures of urban, rural and suburban Hoosiers are linked and what might be preventing us from working together. Film is a special medium that allows for storytelling that complements the other ways we’re inviting Hoosiers to think about the meaning of urban, suburban and rural. We’re also eager to create more opportunities for Hoosiers to have their own experiences documented and reflected back to them onscreen.
