Indie Memphis releases film festival lineup

Indie Memphis shares their mission and lineup with Bluff City Life.

“All I want to do is watch a great movie,” you say to yourself. Indie Memphis has the answer.

In the quest for films worth watching, let’s take a step outside of the blockbuster lineup for a carefully curated list of shorts and features available to us thanks to Indie Memphis. Nothing against blockbusters, but there are a lot of great filmmakers out there creating magnificent stories on smaller budgets, in distant lands, presenting themes and cultures and conversations we’d otherwise miss if it weren’t for this weekly series, Indie Memphis Nights. The lineup is announced at the beginning of each month on their website and on Bluff City Life, weekdays at 3 p.m. on WMC Action News 5.

Don’t wait to shoot your shot when you’ve found a synopsis that interests you, these screenings are one night only and they sell out.

Who truly knows how many hours went into assembling these works, so while your watching, admiring, or trying to piece together what’s happening during the show, consider this:

Which themes stick out to you?
Did you notice any visual motifs, what do you think the director is trying to say?
Is there a line, conversation or a mood you can’t forget? Unpack that and then tell a friend, or stranger.

Don’t let me tell you what to do. Support Indie Memphis and enjoy the show!
