Does Iowa have more film festivals per capita that any other state? Sure seems like it. A deadline is fast approaching for submissions to Iowa’s first independent film festival, the 2008 Hardacre Film & Cinema Festival, August 1-2, in Tipton, Iowa. Filmmakers—your features, documentaries, animations, music videos, and shorts are due by Sunday, June 1.
Last year’s “Best Iowa” film award went to Healing Iraq: A Tale Of Two Doctors, by Iowa City filmmaker Kevin Kelley. Visit http://www.tiptoniowa.us/hardacre/ to find out what other films won top awards last year.
