Where’s Amy?: Heartland Film Festival


“Where’s Amy?” … I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview director Patricia Riggen before her film “The 33” screened to a sold out crowd at the Heartland Film Festival. “The 33” comes out Nov. 13 and stars Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche, James Brolin and Lou Diamond Phillips. The film is based on the real events of a 2010 mining disaster, in which a group of 33 miners were trapped inside the San Jose Mine in Chile for more than two months. I also had a wonderful time meeting Emmy Award winning director and writer James Sadwith, along with Hollywood celebrities Alex Wolff (My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2) and Stefania Owen (The Lovely Bones) at the sold-out world premiere screening of “Coming Through The Rye.” The Heartland Film Festival brought Filmmakers from around the world to Indiana to screen their films at the AMC Castleton and Traders Point near Zionsville.
