Follow Indie Memphis with MFS!


As all of you know, the 2009 Indie Memphis Film Festival is kicking off this evening with a free exhibition and reception at the Marshall Arts center (5pm). The event features the war photography of Robert King, the music of Jonathan Kirkscey and serves as a preview for this year's opening night documentary, Shooting Robert King (screening Thu, Oct 8 at 7:15pm and 9:45pm).

If you aren't sure about attending this year's festival, come out for this event (it's free!) and be convinced! This year's festival features great screenings, unique networking opportunities and the chance to learn about film direction from mumblecore luminary Joe Swanberg (you can also catch one of Swanberg's newest films, Alexander the Last, at the festival)!

Other key screenings at this year's festival include the recently added Paranormal Activity (can you say, 'Thank you, Craig Brewer?'), a work-in-progress screening of Kentucky Audley's new film (as well as the trailer for his upcoming movie Open Five) and That Evening Sun (the opening night narrative feature). That said, here's a preview of the opening day of the festival on Thursday, Oct 8:

5pm Opening Night Reception at the Festival Cafe
7pm That Evening Sun screening at Studio on the Square
7:15pm Shooting Robert King screening at Studio on the Square
9pm Opening Night Afterparty at the Vine
