Lil Film Fest is a new kind of festival, highlighting local talent while showcasing interesting happenings around town. Heres how the festival works: Every 3 months LFM staff members announce a new theme to the filmmaking community. Filmmakers then put their own unique spin on producing a short film. The theme for the second Li'l Film Fest was barbecue, and in the first Fest, the films had to have footage of the implosion of Baptist Hospital.
The winner(s) of the audience favorite balloting get a $200 cash prize and a spot in the next Indie Memphis Film Festival. Additionally, the li'l films must not exceed 5 minutes in length.
