Whether you are flying in from many miles away or trekking across town, Southern Screen attracts entertainment lovers and creators to see something new and learn something unforgettable. With dozens of films screened each year, plus an array of workshops, panels, parties, and live performances, the four-day celebration every November is sure to entertain, educate, and inspire. 

November 11-14 we will finally be meeting again in person to celebrate Southern Screen, but due to COVID-19, there will be safety precautions put in place for the safety of our crew, special guests, and festival attendees. The festival will also be presented virtually for anyone who would like to experience the festival but does not feel comfortable meeting in person.
