"Reel Rural: Rural America in Independent Film" will present the work of four filmmakers whose films provide authentic portrayals of life in rural America. The filmmakers will attend to conduct post-screening Q&As and participate in a free panel discussion focusing on how the independent film genre is uniquely positioned to depict regional mores and points of view and the challenges in getting such films to audiences in the regions they seek to represent.

The hour long panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A and a meet-and-greet with the participating panelists. The panel discussion will begin at 10:30 AM with screenings of the films following throughout the day.
