In association with the Missouri production company Dixie Films, organizer of the Ozark Shorts film screening series, a package of Encore Films productions will be screened coast-to-coast across the United States between now and the end of the year.

Included in the package are Love Song: The Triumph and Tragedy of Tchaikovsky, Adoration: A Natural History, The Red Rose, Too Many Ghosts, From Bohemia’s Woods and Fields and Silly Robin, along with the 2016 award-winning musical, I’ll Walk with God. The screenings, which will be free and open to the general public, will take place in different towns and cities across America. A number of the showings will be at open-air venues, both during the day and in the evening.

Ozark Shorts is a phenomenon, a runaway success story. It began in the spring of 2014 at a library in a small town in the Ozarks Mountain Country – an area covering much of the southern half of Missouri and an extensive portion of north-western and north central Arkansas and extending westward into north-eastern Oklahoma and extreme south-eastern Kansas.

By November, free screening events were taking place in seven different towns and cities across the Midwest. Last December, the monthly screening series were extended to Los Angeles and today they are happening coast-to-coast in towns and cities right across America.

The founder is the amazing US filmmaker Jack Truman who undertakes true underground, independent filmmaking in the Ozarks. Dixie Films, in fact, is a thriving, vigorous production company in south-west Missouri made up of the mother-son filmmaking team of Opal Dockery and son Jack Truman (above). Their many award-winning films include The Acceptable Sin and The X-Rated Grandma.

Also, in the United States, Too Many Ghosts will be shown at two events in Virginia in May and June. And, in the spring and summer, I’ll Walk with God is scheduled to be screened across many states in North America including Pennsylvania, California, New York, Texas, North Carolina, Michigan, and New Brunswick.
