Festival Name: Indie Memphis Film Festival
Location: Memphis, TN, United States
Set for October 8-15, 2009, the 12th annual Indie Memphis Film Festival is headquartered at the Studio on the Square, a boutique theater that provides an atmosphere of intimate accessibility in the heart of the historic Overton Square neighborhood of Midtown Memphis -- the city's cultural center and home to a plethora of restaurants, bars and clubs, all a literal stone's throw from the theater.
Last year, former New York Times film critic & renown interviewer ELVIS MITCHELL (KCRW's "The Treatment," TCM's "Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence") joined the festival as part of the Features Jury and hosted conversations with filmmaker CRAIG BREWER ("Hustle & Flow," "$5 Cover") and actor/director GIANCARLO ESPOSITO ("Do The Right Thing," "Homicide: Life On The Streets"), who walked away with the inaugural Southern Soul of Independent Film award for his directorial debut, "Gospel Hill," which made its Regional Premiere at the festival.
