Memphis International Film Fest

Film and music lovers, if you’re looking for fascinating feature and short films to make you laugh and cry, documentaries and experimental films to make you think, animation to amaze and delight, and, for the first time, music videos to get you up on your feet and put a song in your heart, join us at the Memphis Film Forum’s 8th Annual Memphis International Film Festival, March 22-25, 2007, at Malco’s Paradiso and Malco’s Studio on the Square theatres.

The Mid-South’s premiere film event, our festival attracts top films and filmmakers from all over the world, along with fantastic local filmmakers, giving us an intriguing and inspiring collection of films to share with our audience.

Film submissions are closed, and the screeners are engaging in the exciting process of judging the entries. The chosen films will be announced February 5 and also will be posted on our website, memphisfilmforum.org, along with viewing dates and times. A festival pass can be purchased in advance by calling 901-626-9685 for only $ 35, entitling the bearer not only admission to all the films, but to a cornucopia of events, including parties and seminars presently being planned. Individual tickets will also be available for purchase to sample the many offerings we’ll be presenting.

New this year, the Memphis Film Forum is promoting a design contest for our festival logo which will be used on the official festival poster, t-shirt and other marketing materials. The winning artist will receive a pair of all-access VIP passes for the entire festival as well as the gratitude and recognition of the Memphis arts community. Entries will be accepted immediately, through Friday, February 9th, 2007. Full details are available on our website at www.memphisfilmforum.org.

Seeking more involvement? We’re actively seeking volunteers, who, for their support, will receive passes and other considerations. We’re a non-profit, working to inspire and educate our community, so we appreciate all of our wonderful volunteers!

Need more information? You can visit our website where you can email us or call us at (901) 626-9685.

So mark your calendars, March 22-25, 2007, and we’ll see you at the Memphis Film Forum’s Great Eighth Annual Memphis International Film Festival at Malco’s Paradiso and Malco’s Studio on the Square theatres.
