The 2019-2020 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers will include 24 Screening Partner venues spanning eight states. Each film screening includes an opportunity for the audience to participate in a Q&A with the filmmaker, further exploring the content of the film or their work in the industry. Films selected to tour include both narrative and documentaries. The Screening Partner venues, in coordination with South Arts, curated the selections from submissions earlier this summer. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part through a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
