Indie Memphis -- deadline news

The 9th annual Indie Memphis Soul of Southern Film Festival is scheduled for
October 13-19 at Muvico Peabody Place 22 Theaters in downtown Memphis.

The published deadline for film submissions is July 15. However this year we
have a special extended deadline of July 31 for filmmakers who submit their
movies through Withoutabox. ( All submissions must fit
within the festival theme: a celebration of independent southern cinema.
These are movies that are either made in the south, made by southern
filmmakers, or have some relevance to the southern experience.

The Indie Memphis partnership with Withoutabox is new this year. Today we
were included in an email blast to over 93,000 filmmakers (below), and we
will be included in another blast two weeks from today. We've heard great
things from filmmakers and film festivals about the role that WAB plays in
getting independent films seen by audiences. We are optimistic that this
partnership will have great benefits in our efforts to program the best in
independent cinema.

We'll keep you posted as our plans develop.

Thanks for your support!
