Let It Snow is set to begin shooting very soon and the casting directors of this potential Christmas favorite are on the lookout for fresh new talent to be a part of the movie magic.
Let It Snow will be a family-friendly holiday tale that centers on a group of displaced family members reuniting for Christmas and the wild adventures that they all go on to get there. This hilarious and heartfelt story will feature one of the most tremendous casts in recent memory which thus far includes Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Amanda Seyfried
(Mamma Mia!, Mean Girls, A Million Ways to Die in the West), Golden Globe winner John Goodman (Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Hangover Part III, Monsters, Inc.), Oscar winner Diane Keaton (Annie Hall, Father of the Bride, The Godfather) and Academy Award winner Alan Arkin (Argo, Little Miss Sunshine, The Muppets). The film will be written and directed by PGA Award winner Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam, Stepmom, Because I Said So).

In February 2015, filmmakers from around the world are invited to submit feature length and short films in Narrative and Documentary categories to the 24th Annual Heartland Film Festival. Student filmmakers are also encouraged to apply. High school filmmakers are encouraged to submit their entries to the 5th iteration of the Heartland High School Film Competition. Film submissions are judged on their overall artistic and technical quality, in addition to how they might promote positive change in people’s lives through the transformative power of film.
In addition, the Heartland Film Festival is a qualifying festival for the Annual Academy Awards® within the Short Films Category. This means that the winner of the Grand Prize for Best Narrative Short Film will qualify for consideration in the Short Films category of the Annual Academy Awards® without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.
