Film Fest Updates: On Location Releases Schedule; Indie Memphis Sets Date



Memphis' two primary annual film festivals both made announcements this week.

The On Location: Memphis International Film Festival released the full schedule for its upcoming festival, which will be held April 22-25 at the Ridgeway Four.

Meanwhile, the Indie Memphis Film Festival has announced that its 2010 festival will be held October 21-24 at Studio on the Square, a tighter schedule than the week-long fest that had become the norm in recent years.

“Though attendance has grown by 80 percent in the past two years, most of that growth has been during our weekend screenings," festival director Erik Jambor said in explaining the changes. "The increasing number of out-of-town visitors will find the new schedule much more convenient, and local filmmakers will be pleased to know that their work will screen during the same few days when everyone is here. ”

Indie Memphis has also announced entry deadlines and submission fees for the festival, with staggered deadlines running from April 12th to June 21st. For more info, go here.
