ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Chris Clark, artistic director of Cinema St. Louis, and Phillip Johnson, director of ‘Fire This Time,’ visit Fox 2 News to discuss the upcoming St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase.

The showcase serves as a venue for films made by local artists, screening movies that were written, directed, edited, or produced by St. Louis natives or films with strong local ties. The 15-film programs that screen at the Tivoli from July 19-23 serve as the centerpiece of the showcase.

Johnson also talks about his film, which examines the Ferguson protest movement through the eyes of protesters, activists, and reporters.
