Film Families debuts with Lil' Film Fest
You know about the exceptional local movie/music/art site LiveFromMemphis.com, right? And if you haven't been checking it regularly, you're gonna have to now.
Sarah Fleming and Christopher Reyes have put together "Memphis Film Families: The Source for Memphis Film News and Information" on the site and you'll need to go there at least as often as you come to memphis . cool . movies.
It's got news, a calendar of upcoming events and links. And there's an announcement of what should be the first of many quarterly "Lil' Film Fests." The theme for the first one is the implosion of Baptist Memorial Hospital. Rules are: each film submission must contain footage of BMH imploding, films are 5 minutes max and deadline is Feb. 28. The winner gets $100 and a spot in next year's Memphis Indie Festival.
Sarah and Christopher are taking excellent advantage of the burgeoning indie movement in Memphis. As Key, that sage of "Hustle & Flow" said, "There are two types of people: those that talk the talk and those that walk the walk. People who walk the walk sometimes talk the talk but most times they don't talk at all, 'cause they walkin'."
Sarah and Christopher are walkin'.
