ArtsMemphis Web Finalists


What do Wild Bill's, Ballet Memphis, and the West Clinic have in common?

They are all featured in films from ArtsMemphis' "Our Vibe. Our City On Film" contest. Posted at, the contest's 12 semi-finalist films each showcase a particular aspect of the Memphis arts scene, from music to movies to sculpture to dance.

"Memphis is a vibrant arts community unlike any other and world-renowned for its 'vibe,'" ArtsMemphis CEO Susan Schadt said in a statement. "We hoped that the short films would showcase and highlight some of these facets and we weren't disappointed."

The public is invited to view the films online and vote on their favorites.

In an awards ceremony on April 30th, the top five films will be screened and winners announced. First prize is $2,000 and an entry into October's Indie Memphis Film Festival. Second prize is $750 and third prize is $500.
