On Location: Memphis call for entries

The Call For Entries for the 11th Annual On Location: MEMPHIS int'l film fest is underway! The festival will be held April 22-25, 2010 at Malco's Ridgeway Four.
Screen your film in the birthplace of Rock N Roll, the home of the blues and land of great BBQ!

In addition to all the great things Memphis has to offer, the one thing that filmmakers have told us that sets our festival apart is our rich southern hospitality.

From the moment your film is accepted into our festival we will work to make it easy for you to come to Memphis to share your experiences with us and our audiences.

We host a filmmaker's reception where you will have the opportunity to meet OLM staff, sponsors, jurors, vendors, and even an occasional celebrity. Opening night ceremonies are held at Morgan Freeman's own blues club, Ground Zero, just a block from historical Beale Street. One of our traditions is to take attending filmmakers out to a Memphis-style BBQ lunch (vegetarian dishes available too!). Then there is the Saturday Night Bash to live Blues and Rock&Roll. There will be plenty of opportunity to network with other filmmakers and industry professionals throughout the festival. We do the best that we can to help you arrange for accommodations (cheap to beau coup) transportation and tours of famous Memphis landmarks.

Past festival attendees include: Richard Gladstein, Morgan Freeman, Holly Hunter, Isaac Hayes, Caldecott "Cotty" Chubb, Cybill Shepherd, Alan Bloomquist, Leo Fitzpatrick, Robert Mugge, Don Hertzfeldt, Marilyn Atlas, Craig Brewer, Ira Sachs, Andrew Deane, Jon Glascoe, Joseph Pierson, Del Shores, and Leslie Jordan.

You've worked hard on your film (Music Video, Documentary, Shot Film, Feature Film, etc). Now come and have some fun with us and other filmmakers in one of the most continuously growing and musical of cities. You may even spot a certain elusive fellow last seen in a white rhinestone-studded jumpsuit.
