Wednesday: Free movies!

We have a special Indie Memphis Micro Cinema Club (IMMCC) program this month!

The founder and tireless volunteer curator of IMMCC, Will O’Loughlen, is closing his tenure with this program and we are holding our annual IMMCC cook out in his honor. Please join us at Power House, 45 GE Patterson (between Main & Front streets) at 6:30 for the cook out. The movies will begin at 7:30 and this month all films featured are directed by or star our good friend Will. Please join us to congratulate and thank Will for all of his time and energy in building what is arguably one of the best programs in Memphis, Indie Memphis Micro Cinema Club!

Ad Man
Hank is a small town guy with big city dreams. Passionate about advertising he decides to move to the big city and make his mark. He hits the streets to drum up new business and eventually starts his own firm training a pack of newcomers to be successful in advertising. 11 minutes, starring Will O’Loughlen.

Tea and Cigars
Is it the missing chapter from Jim Jarmusch's conversational film "Coffee and Cigarettes"? Not exactly! "Tea & Cigars" imitates the style and tone of the original as it finds two men discussing their concern for the lack of good service in this country. 8 minutes,
directed by Will O’Loughlen.

Small Timers
Six Memphis filmmakers set out to produce an independent feature film called "The Big Muddy" with no-budget and minimal resources. The crew tries all kinds of approaches to fundraising, including panhandling in the streets of Memphis only to encounter more problems in the actual production of the film and even more trying to secure distribution. An exploration into the world of no-budget, indie filmmaking. 40 minutes, directed by Will O’Loughlen.

Summer of Youth
A docu-film about the fans of the New York rock combo, Sonic Youth. Sonic Youth have been an institution in the American underground rock scene for more than 20 years. The band has legions of fans around the world and has recorded countless albums over the years. Summer of Youth is road movie, a concert film, and finally a profile of some of the most loyal fans in music. 30 minutes, directed by Will O’Loughlen.

Admission is always free, so is the popcorn!

Let me urge anyone who hasn't yet seen "Small Timers" to take advantage of this event and get inspired.

It's a beautifully constructed piece with of the kinds of moments that make filmmaking the wonderful exercise it can be. When you love making movies, the frustrating times are no less fun than the exhilerating times. "Small Timers" shows that.
