Over the course of his 30 year addiction to narrative and non-fiction filmmaking, Johnny Saint Ours has helped create documentaries and docudramas for HBO, ESPN, VICE, Amazon Prime, History Channel, AMC, Live Nation, National Geographic, and the cinema screen. His work has earned him a variety of awards and accolades, including two Emmy Awards for cinematography.

“Southern Screen is a gem of a festival in a gem of a town. It was the perfect mix of fun, great music and a serious focus on the concrete realities involved in making films in today’s changing environment. There was a tremendous amount of talent in many different disciplines and it was a real eye-opener to discover a lot of the regional talent.”

“Southern Screen is an exceptional gathering of film, continuing education and friends from far and wide. One aspect I particularly like is the true effort made to include local and emerging filmmakers in the programming. To top things off, Lafayette thrives on a true sense of community and there are few places where one can experience the delightful southern hospitality this city offers to its guests.”
