Every November Southern Screen Festival presents four days of film screenings, live music, screenwriting, live podcast, workshops, parties, and more for every unique individual to enjoy. Southern Screen moves beyond traditional film and music festivals, and works to expose the community to the widespread possibilities of storytelling.

There’s nothing like coming down to Lafayette, Louisiana for the Southern Screen Festival. Mark your calendar now for November 8-11, 2018. Get here by submitting a film starting April 12th, or Festival Passes go on sale September 1, 2018!


Southern Screen is a non-profit organization that operates with the help of sponsors, grants, and individual donations. We have sponsorship options for businesses and patrons who want to invest in our community and share our passion for storytelling.


Like making a film or putting on a concert, running a festival takes an entire crew, and we would love your help! Let’s talk about the many ways you can volunteer and join a committee. Contact us if you want to join our team before or during the Festival weekend.


We would love to see your masterpiece and share in the celebration of screening it for our energetic audience. Submissions open April 12, 2018 and deadline; June 12, 2018. Please click above for details on submitting to Southern Screen!
