We take pride here at Indie Grits for advocating a southern film culture. We do this because we know that this region is already rich with a diverse, creative culture for our filmmakers to draw from, be inspired by, and add to.
…But what’s with the grits?
The grits in Indie Grits is yet another way of celebrating all aspects of southern culture–new and old, film and food. Food in the south has always been iconic–a representation of how creative and soulful this region can be–and it continues to progress into innovative, tasty territory.
From trying out a pop-up restaurant before it disappears, to food-truck hopping, to sampling sustainable eats at our highly anticipated Slow Food event; Indie Grits features several events throughout the festival to showcase the delicious food and agricultural excellence that exists here.
So as our films begin to make a new name for this region, it only makes sense to serve em’ up with a side of grits.
