Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers

The City of Roswell’s Historic & Cultural Affairs Division is partnering with South Arts, a nonprofit regional arts organization in Atlanta, to bring the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers and their films to the Roswell Cultural Arts Center in historic Roswell. The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers series includes five documentary-style films and one narrative film.

The films for the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers were reviewed by a panel of industry experts, with final selections determined by screening partners who will present films in their communities. Invited films and filmmakers were chosen from 412 films submitted from across the country.

“We are thrilled to be hosting our first independent film tour in partnership with South Arts,” said Katherine Jones, Cultural Services Manager for the City of Roswell. “One of the neatest parts of the series is the opportunity to speak with each filmmaker during a Q&A after the screening. It will be a wonderful and engaging way for audience members to learn about the art of filmmaking and the process of becoming a working artist in this particular industry.”

Other organizations in the same film circuit include The Tennessee Valley Art Association/Ritz Theatre, Troy University’s Office of Service Learning & Civic Engagement, Union County Community Arts Council/Wingate University, Crossroads Film Society, Union College, and the City of Hapeville Association of Trade & Tourism.

“Our 2016‐2017 slate of Southern Circuit films includes thought‐provoking documentaries, inspiring dramatic narratives and an amusing experimental film. We are excited to screen this impressive collection of films. Audiences will discover the work of an incredible group of filmmakers,” said Teresa Hollingsworth, Senior Director, Film and Traditional Arts at South Arts.

Each event starts at 7 p.m. and runs approximately 2.5 hours. Each film is feature-length and will be shown in full, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. Pre-show concessions and beverages will be available to purchase in the lobby 30 minutes prior to show time. Theatre doors for each event open 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the film.

Tickets are on sale for season passes and individual tickets. Individual tickets are $10 per film; season tickets are $50. There is also be a “Pick 3” option, where you can select three films for $20.
