A few things regarding Indie Memphis:
The festival, which will run Oct. 9-16, needs volunteers and now is not too soon to get in on it. Hit up its Web site and connect.
Also, the call for entries has been out for a while now and local filmmakers should keep in mind that Memphis directors may take an entry fee waiver on their first submission to the festival. Incentives rule.
Note that this week is the next Indie Memphis Micro Cinema Club #41: RURAL ROUTE TOUR - Encore Presentation. It's at 7:30 pm Wednesday, June 11 @ Power House Memphis. Created to highlight works that deal with rural people and place, this year's Rural Route Tour features both fun and serious films from all around the world. Including, arctic owls in Montana, Canadian lawnmower races, a film about light pollution, dancers in the snowy Norwegian tundra, a man's search for his ancestors in Lithuania and some good, 'ol banjo playin' at a Kentucky old folks home. Total running time is 97 minutes.
And here's an item from Film Festival Secrets blog on Erik Jambor who has taken on the role of executive director of Indie Memphis.
