Bring independent filmmakers to your community for screenings and conversations around powerful stories and the art of filmmaking. Screening Partners are partner organizations that present Southern Circuit screenings, Q&As, and other filmmaker engagements with the community. Screening Partners serve as hosts on the tour, thoughtfully connecting touring filmmakers with their communities and providing local recommendations for travel, lodging, and dining. Screening Partners are expected to develop screening audiences through marketing and partnerships. As a cohort, they participate in the film selection process and discuss marketing strategies for each film.
South Arts coordinates touring schedules, connects filmmakers with Screening Partners, and provides marketing materials for each film. Filmmakers receive honorarium with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Screening Partners must be nonprofit, educational, or governmental organizations residing in the South Arts region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee). Southern Circuit Screening Partners have included universities, community arts centers, municipalities, places of worship, and other organizations, serving audiences of all ages.
Southern Circuit is invested in partnering with Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the South Arts region. To discuss potential partnerships, please contact Jordan Young at email@example.com or (404) 874-7244, Ext. 824.
