This is the beginner site for the Memphis Film Society. My name is Rich Newman and I'm in the process of setting up this organization. I will be updating this site with new information over the next few months as things develop. The MFS will be for filmmakers, film enthusiasts, and industry professionals involved with the Memphis film scene--this includes actors!

In addition to hosting monthly mixers and screenings, the Society will also be setting up a filmmaker's grant program, a local short film festival, and setting up a small studio in Memphis that filmmakers can use for screenings, dailies, casting calls, production meetings, etc.--though all of this may be a couple years down the line!

I'm very excited to be a part of Memphis' film scene, and I look forward to meeting everyone in the Memphis film industry at our first mixer in March 2007. Stay tuned as the organization gets off the ground, and we start accepting memberships/sponsorships. For now, please email me with your email address and I will add you to the e-mailings for all the Society events, which are all free of charge. Cheers!
