ACE Southern Circuit Film Series


Welcome to the Southern Circuit – Tour of Independent Filmmakers at WCU!

Southern Circuit provides communities across the South with a tour of highly talented independent filmmakers. Audiences have seen more than 200 films and have engaged filmmakers in post-screening discussions in more than 44 communities across the Southern United States.

Southern Circuit is the nation’s only regional tour of independent filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film. The tour takes the audience away from their televisions, DVD players, and computers to connect them with independent filmmakers and encourage them to talk with one another about the films and their meanings.  Southern Circuit transforms watching independent films from a solitary experience into a communal one.

The 2014-2015 Southern Circuit is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and local partner organizations. Special support for Southern Circuit was provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

All films are FREE!

All films are in the University Center Theater and begin at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted.
There will be a Q&A and reception with the filmmaker after each screening!
