SOUTHERN SCREEN 2019
Southern Screen is a multi-disciplinary arts organization that supports and celebrates entertainment professionals and their work. We work to provide a platform for emerging and innovative storytellers of all types to sharpen their skills, showcase their craft, and share their creativity. Moving beyond traditional film and music outlets, we expose Lafayette, Louisiana to the widespread possibilities of storytelling curating year round events, workshops, and pop-ups all in preparation for our annual Southern Screen Festival every November.
ON VA CONTINUER
SEPT 28TH @ ACADIANA CENTER FOR THE ARTS
The Grammy Award-winning band, Lost Bayou Ramblers, push the boundaries of Cajun music to preserve French language and culture in Louisiana. The film is a look into the modern Cajun lifestyle, and it’s a realization that the “dying” language of Louisiana French may not be so dead after all. An electric performance by the band will follow the screening.

Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and the movie will begin at 7:30 p.m. Food, drinks, and candy will be available for purchase! $20 per car, and $5 for walk-ins, with free entrance into Acadian Village.
