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.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”
