Constellation’s film program brings the art of filmmaking to Bloomington, and beyond! As a film and theater company, we are able to tell stories across different mediums and give writers the opportunity to take their work from page to stage to screen.
Constellation’s Film Department uniquely develops and fully produces stage plays into feature-length films, hosts a regular screening series of classics, indie films, and cinematic experiences, and offers year-round filmmaking classes.
Stage to Screen Program
Constellation’s FIRST full-length feature film is underway! Throughout the 23/24 season, Constellation will be developing its first full-length feature film: The Grown-Ups. Originally seen on stage in our inaugural theatrical season, we’ve spent the last year working with the writers, Skylar Fox and Simon Henriques, to develop the show into a screenplay expected to begin filming in the fall and widely released in 2025. We are thrilled to be getting our first page to stage to screen project off the ground!
Film Screening Series
Film aficionados can dive into classics and obscure cinematic treasures through our screening series! We offer one-of-a-kind cinematic experiences that have you rewatching Hollywood hits in a whole new way: sing along with The Rocky Horror Picture Show, throw spoons at the screen while watching The Room, taste along with Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
We just announced our 23/24 film screening series! Check out our upcoming film screenings here.

Project Constellation (formerly Project Pigasus) is a state-wide high school screenwriting competition sponsored by Indiana based film company Pigasus Pictures. Indiana students grades 9-12 submit short screenplays, a winner is chosen, and Pigasus brings a professional film crew to the winner’s town to fully produce their movie!
