Moving Images in Mississippi Bicentennial Film Series | "Dixieland"

Friday, June 29, 2018

6:30 PM

Trustmark Grand Hall

For more than a century the landscapes and stories of Mississippi have inspired filmmakers. Beginning in Natchez in 1914, cinematic storytellers have used our backdrops to enhance and authenticate their vision. And the imagination of our own writers and the drama of our own history have been brought to life by directors of influence, insight, and power. On the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month through July, the Moving Images in Mississippi Bicentennial Film Series celebrates cinema and Mississippi.

Curated and introduced by longtime Mississippi film commissioner Ward Emling, the series includes panels and one-on-one filmmaker interviews to discuss the films in cinematic, cultural, and historical context. This month, the Friday night film is writer/director Hank Bedford's Dixieland. Come for the screening on Friday evening and then join Emling and Bedford on Saturday, June 30, for a filmmaker workshop and tutorial. Details TBA.

This event is free and open to the public. Cash bar and concessions available for purchase.
