Indie Memphis Film Festival

To ring in its 20th anniversary, Indie Memphis threw its first-ever block party in 2017, shutting down a busy street in the theater district for all three weekend days of the festival to create a fully walkable footprint, replete with a big outdoor screen showing music videos. The causes for celebration are legion—from the fest’s lofty prizes of $7,000 in cash, $10,000 in cash grants, and $16,000 in in-kind grants, to programs like “IndieGrants,” which presents two prizes to regional applications to help fund the production of narrative short films.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.
