NCLAC is excited to be a part of the 2016-17 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, a program of South Arts.
NCLAC will be presenting six independent films at the historic Dixie Center for the Arts. It is very exciting, bringing this art form to our area; normally we have to drive to Shreveport or beyond for independent films. What’s even more special is that the filmmakers will be here, too, offering question and answer sessions after the films. Film synopses are below.
Tickets for each film will be $5 general admission, $3 for students.
Thanks to Ruston-Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau, LA Tech College of Liberal Arts, and Catherine & Winston McVea for support of the Southern Circuit series.
