Say hello to Cinemania! Heartland Film's new signature fundraising event debuting April 19, 2024! Cinemania is a one-night celebration of iconic film through unique experiences. Guests will be immersed in a whimsical world of yellow submarines, strawberry fields and diamond skies with the inaugural theme of A Tribute to The Beatles in Film. Come together for an evening of live music, psychedelic photo experiences, fab food and of course, drinks that will make you feel all right! America's premiere tribute band from Chicago, BritBeat, will be headlining the night. Through elaborate costume changes, they'll take us through The Beatles eras, including the Ed Sullivan Show, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road. 

You can't buy love, but you can buy a ticket to a good time.

VIP Tickets, Premiere Tickets, 10-Packs and Sponsorships are available now!

This red carpet event is a party your friends and clients won't forget! Sponsorship packages begin at $3,500 and can include exclusive studio lounges, VIP tickets, naming opportunities, company recognition and more! VIP ticket packs are also available for $2,500.

About Heartland Film

Heartland Film is a nonprofit arts organization that was founded in 1991. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, Heartland Film's mission is to curate, promote and celebrate thoughtful and engaging films from diverse perspectives. The films we select and exhibit – whether they inspire conversation, ignite imagination, or shift perspectives – all have one thing in common: they are films that do more than entertain. Heartland Film lives out this mission through their internationally recognized film festivals and other year-round programming.
