“Why isn’t there a Film Prize in Memphis?” David Merrill was asked four years ago after a visit to local film competition in, of all places, Shreveport, Louisiana. What was born out of the experience was Memphis Film Prize. This year’s is the 4th, and we talked about the festival/competition and other things Memphis film for this week’s episode. Oh, and the due-date for submission is June 12th!
About Mark Fleischer 71 Articles
I was a career consultant and communications specialist in the payroll industry until moving from southern California to Memphis in late 2015. The Bluff City gave me a new start in the second half of my career, gifting me with a chance to return to my childhood fascinations with cities and my college passions in writing, theater, film, and storytelling, all the while allowing me to use my experience working with people, in consulting, teaching and communications, to bring a new voice to Memphis. This may be my first venture into multi-media publishing, but Life and Place - Memphis - gave me all the prep and tools I need.
