The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers connects independent filmmakers with communities throughout the South for screenings and conversations around stories, important topics, and the art of filmmaking. Since Southern Circuit’s inception in 1975, hundreds of filmmakers from around the country have toured, sharing their work and perspectives with over one hundred Screening Partner communities across the South.
Screening Partners work together to select films of interest to their communities in geographically determined "Circuits." Each Circuit's selections are made individually, with touring filmmakers potentially traveling multiple Circuits.
Southern Circuit prioritizes featuring Southern filmmakers and stories. They are committed to presenting films by filmmakers of color, LGBTQ+ filmmakers, and filmmakers with disabilities. Selected filmmakers represent a broad range of career experience including well established, emerging, and first-time filmmakers. Filmmakers must exhibit an ethical relationship with the topics, individuals, and communities featured in their work.
Southern Circuit is made possible through a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
