INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indianapolis-based Heartland International Film Festival has announced the lineup for this year's 11-day event. The 27th edition will begin October 11 in Indianapolis and award more than $80,000 to filmmakers.

The opening night film will be "Mr. Soul," a documentary about Ellis Haizlip, who hosted a pioneering variety show on public television in the late 1960s focusing on black culture. The closing film will be "Care to Laugh," a documentary about a comedian balancing his career with his life of caring for parents dealing with serious health issues.

Festival President Craig Prater says "in our 27th year, Heartland continues to bring an amazing array of films and filmmakers from around the world to screen for our dedicated film fans in Indiana - with 18 of them making their world and U.S. premieres right here in Indiana, while adding a little Hollywood touch to the proceedings. Opening our fest with a film that has been an award winner at other festivals, and closing with a film that will send everyone home with a smile on their face, exemplifies our efforts to strike a great balance with our programming."

In all, more than 136 films will be showcased at the festival. Filmmakers from 17 countries are represented in this year's lineup.
