NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of “The Good Exorcist,” a 2018 film cowritten by Josh Stifter and Daniel Degnan and directed by Stifter. The screening is at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House.
In this campy comedy, an eccentric wandering priest adventures to a ranch in Texas to dispel the darkness that has come over a peculiar family. As he digs deeper, the priest soon finds that he may be in over his head, according to
Director Stifter made the film as part of the “Rebel Without a Crew” television series, which followed a group of aspiring filmmakers as they each attempted to shoot a feature length film in just two weeks and with a budget of only $7,000.
Stifter will be available for a virtual question-and-answer session following the film screening.
The School of Art’s Friday Night Film Series is sponsored in part by filmmaking Professor William Arscott. The Cole Art Center, SFA’s historic downtown gallery, is located at 329 E. Main St. For more information, call (936) 468-1131.
