A great way to celebrate March Madness in Indiana and support a great organization…
A Benefit for Heartland Truly Moving Pictures
Join Heartland as we celebrate the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame’s induction of screenwriter/producer Angelo Pizzo and director David Anspaugh, the creative team behind the Truly Moving Picture Award-winning film “Hoosiers,” at a special screening event on Sunday, March 17.
For those few out there not familiar with the film, “Hoosiers” is a (1986) sports film about a small-town Indiana high school basketball team that wins the state championship and is loosely based on the Milan High School team that won the 1954 state championship. Growing up in Southern Indiana, the Milan story is legend, for those in Indianapolis, if you haven’t, check out Plump’s Last Shot for more history.
Join me and hundreds of others as we support the Heartland Film Festival and enjoy a great film, make it another great way to celebrate basketball in the great state of Indiana!
This has been one of my all time favorite movies. I was at the first showing of the completed movie at the Warren Performing Arts Center. This was a special screening for the local cast members and their guests and I knew many who had extra and bit parts in the movie and I was their guest. Thirty seconds into the show I turned to one fo them and said “I really like this already.”(The Governor was at the second showing.) This will be a good experience.
