Presbyterian College Brings Southern Circuit Film Program to Campus
Presbyterian College (PC) will bring six independent films and documentaries to campus this fall through SouthArts' Southern Circuit program and through funding from PC's Russell Program for Media, Technology, and Society.

The program provides colleges and their local communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film. The tour connects movie viewers directly with independent filmmakers and encourages them to talk with one another about the films and their meanings.
The films coming to PC include:
• Small, Beautifully Moving Parts – September 24, 2012
• Otis Under the Sky – October 22, 2012
• Smokin’ Fish – November 12, 2012
• Girl Model – February 18, 2013
• Free China: The Courage to Believe – March 18, 2013
• Strong! – April 22, 2013
PC is one of six new schools to be selected for participation in the program.
“We are thrilled to bring the Southern Circuit program to PC and the Clinton community,” said Dr. Molly McGehee, assistant professor of English. “The screening of each film will be followed by a rare opportunity for an in-person discussion with the filmmaker.”
All film screenings will be shown in HP Amphitheater.at 7 p.m.
