Film Festival To Mark Diversity Theatre’s 25th Anniversary

Bloomington’s Diversity Theatre is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a film festival.

Founding member Audrey Heller is a long time actor, producer and director, but she’s also a keen student of films, especially documentaries.

“One of our films is actually by the daughter of an American Indian woman who was so abused in her youth that she had to get through an adulthood that included drug addiction and some very rough times.

It’s exciting that the mother came through it and that the daughter was able to assemble such a fine and artistic tribute.

Babita wanted to emphasize the breadth of the festival.

“So often diversity is just limited to race, to skin color. It’s Asian or Caucasian or African American. These films also consider the diversity of differing abilities of economic and social diversity in an enjoyable way that’s also educational.”

The Mosaic Diversity Film Festival takes place from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturdays April 4 and April 11 at Bloomington’s City Hall.

Several IU Departments and the Bloomington Community and Family Resources Department are the primary sponsors.

George Walker

George Walker was born in Winchester, Virginia, and raised in Owl’s Head, Maine, and Valhalla, New York. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he came to Bloomington in 1966 and completed an M.A.T. degree in English at Indiana University. George began announcing for WFIU in 1967. Currently, along with regularly hosting classical music shows, he interviews artists in a wide variety of areas and reviews plays and operas. He’s the proud father of grown sons Ben Walker (and his wife Elise Katzif Walker) and Aaron Walker. In his time away from WFIU, George enjoys an active life with wife Carolyn Lipson-Walker, singing, reading, exercising and playing guitar.
