Bring indy filmmakers to your community with South Arts

Become a Southern Circuit 2023/2024 screening partner

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, April 25, 2023

The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers works with a network of screening partner organizations to connect filmmakers with communities throughout the South for film screenings and conversations around important stories and the art of filmmaking.

Screening partners serve as hosts on the tour, thoughtfully connecting touring filmmakers with their communities and providing local recommendations for travel, lodging, and dining. South Arts coordinates touring schedules, connects filmmakers with screening partners, and provides marketing materials for each film. Filmmakers receive honorarium with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Screening partners must be nonprofit, educational, or governmental organizations residing in the South Arts region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee). Southern Circuit Screening Partners have included schools, churches, arts centers, municipalities, and other organizations serving audiences of all ages.

Screening Partner applications for the 2023/2024 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers are due April 25, 2023.
