Documentary on New Albany to premiere Wednesday

NEW ALBANY — Two local filmmakers have spent almost two years preparing their take on New Albany, and on Tuesday, the public will have the opportunity to catch the premiere of their movie.

“New Albany: City by the River” is the work of Philip Collins and Daniel Frank. Collins is a graphic designer and photographer, and Frank specializes in videography.

They are Indiana University Southeast graduates who have worked on several photography and design projects.

“City by the River” provided Frank and Collins with the opportunity to showcase New Albany’s past, highlight present businesses that are blooming downtown, and give a glimpse of what the Floyd County seat may look like in the future.

“We are documenting these firsthand accounts from people who are essentially rebuilding New Albany with their bare hands,” Collins wrote in an announcement detailing the premiere of the movie.

The 55-minute film will be shown at 7 p.m. Wednesday at The Grand theater, located at 138 E. Market St. in New Albany, with a reception to follow from 8 to 9 p.m.

DVD’s of the documentary will be available for purchase for $25, and there will be “City by the River” posters and postcards for sale.

“This film is a way to educate people on the great history that surrounds them, but at the same time it is a mechanism to bring the present developments and progress together in one place,” Collins said.

Tickets for the Wednesday premiere are $10 or $8 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at, or at the door.
