Memphis Rocks in Film Fest
Memphis Rocks is a category in the On Location: MEMPHIS International Film & Music Festival
Aside from being a civic pride campaign that is a philanthropic effort, Memphis Rocks is a category in the On Location: MEMPHIS International Film & Music Festival. The LPBC created the category, which officially kicked off in 2013 with an amazing group of short film submissions, some of which are featured below, and a theatre-packed screening! The 2014 Memphis Rocks Screening took place on Saturday, April 26. This category is your chance to spotlight positive efforts, interesting short stories, or anything that captures the heartbeat of our city and what makes Memphis Rock! It's a catch all category for good news and stories that will make us smile!
After two years of hosting the Memphis Rocks category at the film festival, the LPBC is excited to now partner with Fuel Film Memphis to expand the effort with additional programming and enhance the overall experience. Fuel Film Memphis is a local nonprofit organization promoting the growth of the Memphis film industry by educating filmmakers and investors on the development of independent film projects, and facilitating relationships between investors, producers, directors and writers to get more local films made in Memphis. Their focus on growing and promoting the local film industry makes Fuel Film Memphis the PERFECT partner! They will be accepting submissions for the 2015 On Location: MEMPHIS International Film & Music Festival - Memphis Rocks category and will be facilitating the selection process for those films that will be featured on the silver screen.
Submissions must be five minutes or less in length. There are five subcategories: individuals, schools, nonprofits, corporations, and judges' choice. Multiple winners can be selected in the judge's choice category. Winning and other selected submissions will be uploaded to our Memphis Rocks channel on YouTube (linked below). The deadline for submissions will be April 1, 2015. To be officially entered, the entries should be dropped off at the Lipscomb & Pitts office, 2670 Union Ave Extended, Suite 100 with your contact information. Digital files are preferred. There is no cost or fee to enter.
The On Location: MEMPHIS International Film & Music Festival screens feature films, documentaries, live action shorts and music videos and includes workshops and seminars. Writers, actors, directors, producers and investors from the U.S. and around the world attend the festival each year.
