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 Minnetrista and the Muncie Sanitary District 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.
