The second EQUUS Film Festival Tour Stop of 2018 will be hosted by the Marley Project and Classically Carolina.  It will be held at the Little Theater in Camden, S.C., Feb. 23 to 25 on two screens. A collection of equine films, fresh from the EQUUS Film Festival in New York City, will be screened. Films will be presented along with a mid-winter equestrian art, literary and food festival. Featuring the new addition of a “Tapas Walk” through Downtown Camden.

“We are thrilled to have this wonderful opportunity again in 2018. The EQUUS Film Festival is an international creative force that provides a platform for all types of equine films, artwork and literature. It is such an honor to be selected as a 2018 tour stop, when you realize that in 2016 and 2017 the festival has been to New York City, Madras Oregon, France, The FEI World Cup, Indian Market Week, the Preakness celebration, and a host of other wonderful places. The Camden equine community includes all breeds and all disciplines so being able to bring in films that cover such a wide range of topics just appeals to everyone. We also welcome guests from across the state and even the nation, as well as non-horse visitors who may be interested in art or film. The Little Theatre is right in the middle of downtown and with the addition of some great locations for art exhibits and film displays, plus access to the Town Green for our Military Appreciation and Family-Friendly events, I can’t think of a better place to hold the event. We have had so much support from the City of Camden for the past two years that we’ve been able to grow and improve the flow of events and add a third day to the schedule” said, Julianne Neal, Coordinator of the Camden SC EFF Tour Stop.

ABOUT THE MARLEY PROJECT – BRUCE ANDERSON AND JULIANNE NEAL

“Bruce Anderson and I started The Marley Project non-profit to focus on equine awareness and education and this festival has provided that opportunity and so much more. Not only have we been able to share our programs through our own documentary “The Edge: Bruce Anderson - Natural Humanship,” we have also had the chance to feature a number of other Camden-based groups and produce new projects on local stories. Through our new Spotlight Rescue Series, we are featuring two shorts on local stories, Bruce’s work with rescue through Nature’s View and Heaven’s Gait, a local equine rescue sanctuary. It has been so rewarding to share these stories, and coming away from New York with the Horse Hero Award and Best Documentary Series was just the icing on the cake. I am looking forward to our local audience having the opportunity to see more of the series and the amazing work going on right here in Camden.”

The Marley Project, Inc. is a registered non-profit 501 (c)(3) dedicated to equine education, advocacy and awareness.
