Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 11, 2011
This week South Arts officially put out the call for new filmmakers for the 2012 -2013 season of Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers.
Southern Circuit is the nation's first regional tour of independent filmmakers, providing communities in a nine-state region in the South with an interactive way to experience independent film and engage with indie filmmakers. The tour utilizes an intimate context to connect audiences with filmmakers and connect with films they might not otherwise have the opportunity to see. Films, including animation, documentaries, experimental and narrative work, are submitted for consideration for the Circuit through an annual nationwide open call for submissions.
Southern Circuit is composed of three separate circuits, each with six filmmakers (for a total of 18 filmmakers) who travel to an estimated eight communities throughout the Southeastern United States. For each Circuit, one filmmaker tours during the months of September, October, November, February, March, or April. Each filmmaker tours for an estimated 10-14 days.
Southern Circuit is open to any filmmaker living in the United States with a valid driver's license. Filmmakers may submit a feature-length work or a group of short films whose combined time reaches feature length - at least 45 minutes with a maximum of 120 minutes.
The application deadline is Wednesday February 15, 2012. Early Bird Registration ends Tuesday January 31, 2012. For more information about Southern Circuit, visit the Southern Circuit website (http://www.southarts.org) or contact Teresa Hollingsworth at thollingsworth(at)southarts(dot)org.
