Heart of the Pines Film Festival brings quality film screenings and events to the heart of “pine country” – East Texas, Louisiana and 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.
Submission is through our listing on FilmFreeway. Special consideration is given to filmmakers from Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, but the festival is open to everyone, including international filmmakers.
Screenings will be held in (or very near) Shreveport, Louisiana, The Woodlands, Texas, and Texarkana, Arkansas. Schedule coming soon.
Festival Director: Courtney Sandifer
