Heartland Film’s Indy Shorts International Film Festival announced a series of 150 short films from 25 countries for its upcoming annual event, which will return to in-person screenings but retains a virtual option.

The festival kicks off virtually July 19 before moving on to indoor screenings at Living Room Theaters and outdoor screenings at the Indianapolis Art Center and a mix of both at Newfields, which will also host the Oscar-qualified film festival’s awards ceremony on July 23.

Indy Shorts will feature 14 world premieres, 11 US premieres, 53 Midwest premieres and 50 Indiana premieres. Highlights include the Midwest premiere of Skin & Bone, a horror film starring and produced by Amanda Seyfried, and a world premiere of Thank You, Ms. Maravel from Rosie’s Theater Kids, an MTV documentary about a school she founded performing arts comedian Rosie O’Donnell.
