Li'l Film Fest THREE!


Live From Memphis presents LI'L FILM FEST 3!! - Call for Entries

Kung who?... No, KUNG FU!!

In the initial development stages of our li'l festival a statement was made. That statement read as follows: "There's always something weird, strange, unusual, funny, or at least interesting happening around town, so we figured, why not turn those happenings into li'l films?"

At this time some of you might be asking yourselves, "What does Kung Fu have to do with Memphis?" If this is the case: (A) Stop talking to yourself, your mom might hear you and send you back to the shrink; and (B) Imagine for a moment small groups of individuals all wandering around town with video cameras making films about Kung Fu.... You know what people will say when they see this strange phenomena? They'll say "How weird," "How strange," "How unusual," "How funny," or "Hey, that's interesting."

So become a part of Memphis happenings and "Get off your ass and go make a Li'l Film - Memphis Style!"

“What is Li'l Film Fest?” you ask. Well, there’s always something weird, strange, unusual, funny, or at least interesting happening around town, so we figured, Why not turn those happenings into li'l films?

“How does it work?” It’s pretty easy. Basically, we here at LFM will pick a theme, then we’ll announce that theme to you, and then you get to go out and make a short video (or film if you want to be fancy) using that theme – the rest of the content is up to you.

“Why is it a mini-fest?” Two reasons: One, we plan on having one every quarter – that’s FOUR festivals a year. How fun is that? And two, when we say “li'l” we mean it - your film must be 5 minutes or less.

“Is there anything else I should know?” Geez, you ask a lot of questions, but the answer is “Yes.” The winner of LFM’s Li'l Film Fest will receive a $200 cash prize plus a guaranteed spot in the next Indie Memphis Film Festival! So keep that in mind when you’re rolling those cameras.

The Short & Sweet:
Theme: Kung Fu
Duration: 5 minutes or less
Deadline: August 31, 2006
Prize: $200 CASH
