The PRAXIS Film Festival is a small town venue for independent filmmakers to present their work in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Filmmakers know about theory and praxis. They come up with story ideas and create films from their imagination. They conjure up amazing images in their mind’s eye, but what ends up on film depends on practical matters like how much cash and credit they have, how many friends can help, and who will show their film. Independent filmmakers create something from almost nothing every time they finish a film on their own dime.
