Clayton Center for the Arts: Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers

Category: Film

The Clayton Center for the Arts is one of 8 venues in the Southeast to screen 6 films as part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. One film will be shown per month in the Lambert Recital Hall. Screenings will be free for High School and College students with a student ID, and admission for the general public $5. All films will be shown at 7pm followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.

“Through the Southern Circuit, we are reshaping the relationship between films, filmmakers, and audiences,” said Teresa Hollingsworth, senior program director with South Arts. “Our Screening Partners are developing thriving audiences who support independent films, and filmmakers have the opportunity to interact with audiences in each community at receptions, Q&As, and workshops. The Southern Circuit is about creating a deeper, more conversational approach to film. Instead of catching a documentary in your living room, audiences get to meet the filmmaker and discuss the creative process." In total, there will be 21 Screening Partners, 18 filmmakers and a total of 124 screenings spanning nine states.

Films to be screened at the Clayton Center are:
• March 14, 2018: Quest with filmmaker Jonathan Olshefski
• April 18, 2018: 78/52 with filmmaker Alexandre O. Philippe
