Interview with Festival Director Teresa Hollingsworth (Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers)

Festival Reviews

Selected as one of MovieMaker Magazine’s ’50 Film Festivals worth the Entry Fee, 2015,’ the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers brings the best of independent film to communities across the South. Audiences have seen over 300 films and have engaged filmmakers in post-screening discussions in more than 100 Southern communities. The tour takes the audience away from their televisions, computers, tablets and phones to connect them with independent filmmakers – live, in-person! Southern Circuit transforms watching independent films from a solitary experience into a communal one.

Interview with Teresa Hollingsworth:

Matthew Toffolo:What is your Film Festival succeeding at doing for filmmakers? 

Teresa Hollingsworth:To quote one of our Southern Circuit alums, “I got to screen my film for real people,” meaning non-film festival audiences. Filmmakers have the opportunity to screen for a variety of audiences – high school and college students, inner city and rural community folks, and, yes, indie film buffs.
