A Cinematic Celebration of the Deep South
Join us on the opening day of the EEFF’s residency at Red for a day-long celebration of Louisianan liquored film and song!
Grab some gumbo, grits and a Bloody Mary, and kick back with some Southern-fried cinema, a collection of award-winning films, which take you from lauded Southern musicians to tales of cross-burning and violence on the Bayeux, culminating in an rarely seen screening of cult underground movie Cockfighter.
Grits n’ Gravy is organised by film festival veteran Brian Gordon and theatre director Julie Alexander. Gordon grew up in Cincinnati across the Ohio River from the South’s northernmost border and served as the Artistic Director at the Nashville Film Festival. Alabama born, California raised Alexander is a documentary filmmaker who also headed a theater company in Nashville. More details here.
