Indie Memphis will hold its 14th annual Indie Memphis Film Festival this year from November 3 to November 6, 2011. Screenings and events will once again take place in the heart of Midtown Memphis at the new Playhouse on the Square, Malco Theatre’s Studio on the Square, and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.
The Indie Memphis Film Festival, which was named one of MovieMaker magazine’s “25 Coolest Film Festivals” in 2009, drew a record-setting crowd of 7,800 attendees in 2010.
“We are thrilled to be returning to the Playhouse, the Studio on the Square and the Brooks for our fourteenth edition,” said Erik Jambor, executive director of Indie Memphis. “Last year, we saw a record number of Memphians come to Midtown Memphis to attend our festival, and the move to early November will serve our community even better. Falling after area schools have returned from Fall Break, the later dates will especially help us to better engage the Memphis student population.”
Scheduled to attend and serve on the 2011 festival jury are Ira Deutchman (Emerging Pictures, Fine Line Features), Peter Gilbert (Hoop Dreams), Gill Holland (Loggerheads, Greg the Bunny), Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood), and Scott Mosier (Clerks).
Beginning Friday, March 4th, filmmakers may submit their work; deadlines for submission and entry fees for the 2011 festival are:
Earlybird Deadline: April 1 – $35 for features / $25 for shorts
Regular Deadline: May 1 – $45 for features / $35 for shorts
Late Deadline: June 1 – $55 for features / $45 for shorts
