Indie Memphis Film Festival

Memphis, Tennessee / October 30-November 4, 2019 / indiememphis.com 

Despite being a local-minded festival, Indie Memphis still has the pull to bring in major well-known talent. Last year’s fest featured Boots Riley, Amy Seimetz, and the great Chris Elliott. Beyond movies the festival takes advantage
of the vibrant local music scene, arranging for musicians to perform before every screening and showing movies with live musical accompaniment. In addition to offering many awards, including those for local projects, Indie Memphis offers three $13,000 cash/in-kind equipment rental IndieGrants (one doc and two narrative) to local moviemakers.

      I can assure you that the Beaufort International Film Festival held each February in Beaufort, SC is well worth the entry fee. See the recap here -https://vimeo.com/321820933
