Li'l Film Fest Pays Tribute to Craig Brewer

comment
LiveFromMemphis.com is calling all filmmakers to express their inner Craig Brewer. The theme for their next Li'l Film Fest short-film contest is "The Legend of Craig Brewer."

Memphis director Brewer debuted his latest feature Black Snake Moan at the Sundance Film Festival on Wednesday night. The film is scheduled to be released February 23rd.

The Li'l Film Fest is a quarterly event, featuring films that are five minutes or less. A theme is picked for each fest, which in the past have included kung fu and the implosion of the Baptist Hospital downtown. Winners in two categories — Audience Choice Award and the Jury Award — each receive a trophy and $200.

Brewer was chosen as a theme for the fest in recognition of the exposure he's brought the city.

Deadline for submissions is March 2nd. The festival will be March 17th.
