Katelyn Calhoun

Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA


As a documentary filmmaker, Katelyn highlights moments that spark empathy in others. She is currently producing a film on the northern long-eared bats of Southern Indiana for the Indiana Forest Alliance. When approached by the IFA, she set a goal to tell the story of what's at stake for the people of Indiana if the bat's population diminishes beyond repair.


Last year, she co-produced Braided with the Current funded by Indiana Humanities and the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. Braided with the Current focused on the people’s relationship with the unassuming White River and calling to action its appreciation. 


Her goal is to represent Indiana on a national and international level as she creates non-fiction films about communities all over the world.
