SRF on the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers

During the month of March, Ashley and I will be screening our films in eleven cities throughout Southeast as part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. We will be screening Gina, An Actress Age 29; Quick Feet, Soft Hands; and For Memories’ Sake.

Southern Circuit is a long-running program of SouthArts (formerly the Southern Arts Federation). As described on their website, “Southern Circuit is the nation’s only regional tour of independent filmmakers.” The program is supported by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, with other support coming from the National Endowment for the Arts. To say that we’re honored to be selected and excited to screen our work this way would be an understatement.

Here are the dates and venues of our tour. If we’re coming to your area, come see us. If you have friends in any of these cities, spread the word! We’ll be posting Facebook invites to screenings and notes from the road to the new Self-Reliant Film fanpage.

    Congrats Paul. i used to run this when it was managed by the SC Arts Commission. The South Arts people seem to be doing a great job with expanding this to three circuits. A great way to connect with audiences. Have fun!

    Hi Ashley:
    Troy told me your doc was a “must see” and he was right on. We watched it together and then showed it to students for a “New Media Workshop” that we’re team teaching. What a beautiful testament to memory, connectedness, creativity, collection, and so many other generative concepts. What you’ve managed to accomplish in this work is nothing short of remarkable…so difficult to insert the self–and so essential to post-colonial approaches–and you do it ever so effectively. If I were sure what the word meant I’d venture to say you do it “with aplomb”! Thanks for a beautiful tribute to your beloved grandmother and a very smart reflection on how to use the film medium productively and provocatively. Wow!!! With admiration & un abrazo / a hug, Ann Marie
    PS Looking forward to meeting you soon…
