festivals in the country, the last two editions of the festival have featured

The Public Cinema is now in its second year curating and expanding the 
cinematic offerings at Big Ears, and we are happy to invite submissions for

It is FREE to submit your film. You may submit via an online form found here:

We are especially interested in film/video work that would be a World, North 
American, USA, or Southeast regional premiere in March 2017. Regardless of 
premiere status, we are excited to consider any work that might be appropriate 
for the festival. 

The dates for Big Ears are March 23-26, 2017. We hope you will consider sharing 
your work with us, and we invite you to share this announcement with anyone 
that might be interested!

Thank you,

Paul Harrill & Darren Hughes
