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 and share positives in our community. This year the theme is "A City Full of Culture and Energy," so all entries should showcase moments and stories that reveal the heart and "culture" or the contagious "energy" of our citizens and community. This broad theme should be fun for individuals, of all ages or as an organization, such as a schools, nonprofit, business, or church group. Winning and other selected submissions will be uploaded to our Memphis Rocks channel on YouTube (linked below). The deadline for submissions will be July 10, 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. The event will be held on September 3-6, 2015.
