“It Happened One Weekend” is happening this weekend.

Among other Hoosier-made films, “It Happened One Weekend” will be featured in the Heartland International Film Festival, which will run from Thurs., Oct. 6-Sun., Oct. 16.

The film stars two Hoosiers who spend the weekend walking around Indy, talking about life. Shot in black-and-white, Nuvo called it “a love letter to romantic comedies and the Circle City itself.” If you see the movie, you’ll recognize spots like Mass Ave. + Fountain Square, which give the film “a warm backdrop.” If you’re unable to see this film at The Living Room or the Glendale Landmark, you can stream it online.
