Film Mixer Successful!

With a turnout of 100+ for our first film mixer, we are more than pleased here at the Memphis Film Society. With a crowd that included actors, gaffers, directors, talent agents, casting agents, and local resources, the Network Memphis Film Mixer at Celtic Crossing was a great success.

We'd like to thank everyone who took the time to come out and support local, Memphis film by attending the mixer and purchasing passes for the Memphis International Film Festival. Next month's mix should prove to be even bigger and better. With a scheduled speaker, free swag, plenty of networking opportunities, and a night of awesome food and drink at Celtic Crossing, the April mix will satisfy everyone.

Stay tuned for more info regarding the next mix, as well as our first Memphis Film Society screening that should be hitting next month. And it won't be just any screening...how about a screening with the filmmaker in attendance, food and drinks, and giveaways? More info will be coming soon...

Hey, send us your email address and we'll get you on the mailing list. Contact us at info@memphisfilm.org for all the latest. Cheers!

1st Ever Network Memphis Film Mixer

The Memphis Film Society is proud to announce that the first of our monthly programs will be rolling out this month! The 1st Network Memphis Film Mixer will be held on March 21, 6pm at the Celtic Crossing Irish pub (903 South Cooper) in the Outdoor patio area. This is the day before the Memphis International Film Festival kicks off--so use this mixer as a chance to make contacts, plan your schedule, and organize!

In addition to networking with other local filmmakers, actors, and film crew, the Memphis Film Forum will be on hand to sell advance tickets and passes to the 8th Annual Memphis International Film Festival.

The Celtic Crossing will be offering drink specials, great food at a great price, and a night of trivia competition after the mixer as well, so lets get the word out about this event!

Come on out and join us for an event that will only grow over the next few months. More info about the mixer, as well as a possible speaker will be released later. Feel free to contact us at info@memphisfilm.org with any questions, suggestions, or input concerning the Memphis Film Society or the Network Memphis mixers.
