The Indie Memphis Film Festival has been named one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast” for November by the Georgia-based Southeast Tourism Society.
That’s the third honor the festival has received since last year’s festival.
The organization was awarded a $10,000 grant by the Academy Foundation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization that holds the Academy Awards, and Indie Memphis was honored by Carnival Memphis with an Award of Excellence in recognition of outstanding achievement and service to the movie & film industry and the local community.
All of that is in addition to being previously ranked one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals” by MovieMaker magazine.
This year will mark the Indie Memphis 15th anniversary for the festival November 1 through November 4. This year, the festival also has added The Circuit Playhouse to the list of festival venues that also includes Playhouse on the Square, Malco Theatre’s Studio on the Square, and the Dorothy K. Hohenberg Auditorium at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.
