There’s currently 3 more days of the The Heartland Film Festival, and today Jessica chapman, marketing manager of Heartland Film, AJ Meijer, actor in “See You Next Christmas” and Seanne Winslow, director of “The Falconer,” joined us to discuss two of their upcoming screenings and the upcoming awards.

“See You Next Christmas” – Thursday at Newfields

Description: Annie and Tom Clark throw a holiday party every year, “Clarkmas.” Over the years, it’s become the go-to holiday event for their ragtag group of friends. When chronically single Natalie and Logan continue to run into each other at the party year after year, they begin to wonder if maybe they’re meant to be together…

“The Falconer” – Friday at Kan Kan Cinema

Description: Inspired by true events, two best friends, Tariq, an Omani boy, and Cai, a privileged Westerner, conspire to steal animals from the zoo and sell them on the black market to raise money for Tariq’s sister’s divorce from an abusive marriage. They are forced to wrestle with morally complex choices that reveal the vast distance between their worlds.
