Welcome to Pine Country! Heart of the Pines Film Festival brings quality film screenings and events to the heart of “pine country” – East Texas, North Louisiana and South Arkansas. Our focus is to bring films with heart, and those that challenge the audience to push their comfortable cultural boundaries – to see things from someone else’s perspective. We would like to help filmmakers tell unique, impactful stories.

Screenings will be held in Minden, Louisiana (near Shreveport) on July 25th-26th.
