Filmmakers Steve and Mary Pruitt fulfilled their dream of entering the Heartland Film Festival.

The film Works in Progress, created by the husband-and-wife team of Steve and Mary Pruitt (featured in the Winter 2010 edition of IUPUI Magazine), was among the entries in the 2011 Heartland Film Festival.

Being chosen for this year’s event fulfills a major dream for both Mary (a 1994 IUPUI graduate) and Steve (a former faculty member in the IU Kelley School of Business at IUPUI, now the Alvin Gottlieb/Missouri Endowed Chair of Business Economics and Finance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City).

Works in Progress is a romantic comedy tracking the lives of two art school graduates as they launch their artistic careers.
