Another Great Year for 2014!

With the first of our quarterly mixers fast approaching, we thought it would be great to let you know what's happening with the Memphis Film Society!

--Return of the 48 Hour Film Project.  It will be our third year rolling out this weekend of filmmaking fun and it should prove to be the most exciting yet.  With teams coming from Oxford, Tupelo, and even Nashville, there will be more fun and filmmaking to be had in this year's event.  Be sure to follow the Memphis 48 Hour Film Project on our official Facebook page and keep an eye out for registration at our official website.

--More free screenings.  Last year we hosted five free screenings of fantastic movies for the Memphis film community--including Zero Dark Thirty, Captain Phillips, and Rush.  We have partnered with several PR firms to insure that even more freebies will be screened in 2014.

--Mixers!  Yes, the quarterly mixers are returning.  One for each season.  The first is coming up in just a couple weeks (stay tuned to the MFS Facebook page for the event posting) and is sponsored by Jungle Software.  In addition to mixing it up with Memphis film folks and actors, we will be giving away a few copies of Jungle Software's killer film production software, Chimpanzee.  Who knows?  There may be a few additional surprises and giveaways, too...

It all adds up to a great year ahead.  Be sure to sign up for our free newsletter to get direct invites to the events (in the sidebar) and let us know if there's something else that we need to be doing for the Memphis independent film scene.
