My wife and I love movies. In fact, we signed up for one of those Netflix® deals to catch the movies we miss.

There is a small film festival in Indianapolis that just recently concluded. This was their 17th year in business. At the Heartland Film Festival awards are given for "Truly Moving Pictures" ... movies that capture humanity in its better light; that are truly uplifting. And the award is pretty nice. The winner receives $100,000 to go and continue to make good movies.

Here's a list of films the festival has honored, and I echo the site's suggestion that you print it out and take it with you to the video store. I'll be using it to add to my queue over at Netflix®.


A bus carrying two dozen stuntmen on their way to a film location in the mountains spun out of control on a narrow, slippery road. It crashed through the guard rail, careened down a 90-foot embankment, rolled over, and then burst into flames.

There were no injuries.
