From the South Arts website:
Southern Circuit brings the best of new independent film to communities across the South. Audiences have seen over 300 films in more than 100 Southern communities. The Circuit takes the audience away from their televisions, computers, tablets and phones to connect them with independent filmmakers – live! Southern Circuit transforms watching film from a solitary experience into a communal one. South Arts works collaboratively with Screening Partners to expand their programming; provide audiences with the opportunity to meet filmmakers and learn about the art of filmmaking; and encourage community engagement using film as a conduit for discussions about social and community issues. Invited filmmakers have the opportunity to screen their work for new audiences in addition to being paid and having travel costs provided for screenings!
