In the spirit of keeping things creative, Southern Screen is going off script and embracing our Seven Year Itch! For the past 6 years we have focused mainly on film, but in 2017 we are opening our eyes and ears to new (and old) mediums of storytelling. And we are doing it all in the heart of Cajun Country.
In November the festival will present 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. The festival offers a hands-on experience, where the creativity mixes with a landscape of the local Louisiana culture to inspire and ignite the local community and visiting artist. We are invested in the process of educating our community on how to appreciate the art of storytelling as well as give them the tools to create their own. We believe there is no better place than Lafayette, Louisiana for Southern Screen to celebrate and share what local and visiting storytellers have accomplished. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
