New Announcements: July 13

Winners of the Cellardoor Cinema Screenplay Contest have been announced.  Drew Fleming's script Special was chosen along with Duane P. Craig's screenplay Severe.  Fleming's script will be produced by the production company this September with Craig's film going into production in January 2011.  Cellardoor Cinema has stated that this contest will be a yearly event so stay tuned for future contest announcements.

Old School Pictures has announced an encore performance of their new film, Daylight Fades.  It will be hitting the big screen at Studio on the Square on Tuesday, July 20th with two performances (7pm and 9:25pm).  Tickets may be purchased here and are selling for $9.99.  This may be your last chance to catch this Memphis-made film in its home town so come out and support this local production!  More details about the film, as well as ways to follow the movie, can be found on the Daylight Fades website.

Indie Memphis is now hosting their volunteer meetings/mixers.  It's a great way to assist with the film festival, to learn more about local film production and to meet others in the film community.  More information about these meetings can be found on the Indie Memphis website and on their Facebook page (you can link to it via the Indie Memphis website).

The Memphis Film Society mixer for July will be happening once again at Raffe's Beer Garden and Deli on Wednesday, July 28 (7-9pm).  The speaker will be director Brad Ellis of Old School Pictures (Daylight Fades).  The event is free and Raffe's will be offering great drink specials.  Be sure to bring out your business cards, flyers for film events/casting and be ready for a great time!
