MOSAIC Film Festival

Diversity Theatre, a program of the City of Bloomington Community and Family Resources Department, presents its 3rd Annual MOSAIC Film Festival this February. Retired IU faculty member Audrey Heller and attorney for IU’s Student Legal Services Stacee Evans spoke with George Walker about the event.

Highlights From The Interview

Heller spoke about a couple of special pieces made by students at Bachelor Middle School. One film, Respect, deals with what it means to have concern for others. Another,  Homeless In The U.S., won an international award.

“We’re especially happy that these are included in the showings that will take place at Rhino’s,” Heller says.

Evans is a friend of film maker Jo Throckmorton, whose work she describes. “Jo’s Hard Life is a feature in which three Indiana residents take viewers through events which resulted in their homelessness and in their recovery. Jo will talk about and introduce his film for the Saturday the 27th showing.”

This year’s festival is sponsored in part by Shalom Community Center, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, Community Kitchen of Monroe County, In., Stepping Stones, Inc., AccessAbilities, Inc., City of Bloomington Council for Community Accessibility, Centerstone, Stone Belt Arc, Milstones Clinical and Health Resources, CHADD, and NAMI.
