      Next Indiana Campfires Films: Indianapolis Launch Party

      Make a splash and join Indiana Humanities for the premiere of three new short films about the White River and the lives it touches.  Through the films, you’ll meet volunteers, artists, activists, farmers, engineers, developers, city officials, hikers and parents. You’ll paddle downstream with friends of the White River, tunnel under the city with Dig Indy, and soar overhead with the great blue herons of our region. Again and again, you’ll see views of the river and perspectives on Central Indiana you never knew existed. We hope these films awaken new appreciation of the White River and spark meaningful conversations about its future. At this premiere event in partnership with the Indianapolis Art Center,  you'll have a chance to view these films for the first time and to mix and mingle with film aficionados, nature lovers, and Central Indiana ambassadors. After the films, we'll have a Q&A with the filmmakers. Hors d'oeuvres and complimentary Upland Brewing Co. beers will be served.   SCHEDULE7:00 PM Reception with filmmakers7:45 PM Film screening begins8:30 PM Q&A with filmmakers This event is free and open to the public.

We’ve hiked and paddled the river and its feeder creeks, learning about the efforts to restore and conserve one of our state’s most significant waterways and considering how it connects urban, suburban and rural Hoosiers. To explore these connections further—and to document a particularly exciting moment for Indiana waterways—we also funded the creation of three short films about the White River.   In March, the full-length films and a discussion toolkit will be available online to help Hoosiers talk about the films with neighbors, students, friends and family. We’ll also be offering stipends to community groups that host public screenings and discussions of the films in 2019 and 2020.   Next Indiana Campfires Films were made possible in part thanks to funding from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  Learn more at This event is free and open to the public, though advance registration is requested. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open 30 minutes prior to start time.    ABOUT INDIANA HUMANITIESIndiana Humanities connects people, opens minds and enriches lives by creating and facilitating programs that encourage Hoosiers to think, read and talk.
