Crosstown Arts presented the third MemFeast in collaboration with Indie Memphis, and sought proposals for short films based on the theme of neighborhood.At each MemFeast, anyone from the community can buy a $25 ticket for an amazing, locally sourced dinner, along with drinks and a ballot to vote on the night’s presentations. During the meal, a juried selection of local artists present proposals for their short film projects. At the end of the night, diners vote for their favorite idea and the project with the most votes is awarded $5,000 to produce the work.
All regional artists and filmmakers at any stage in their career are invited to submit proposals for MemFeast 3. The guiding theme is “neighborhood”, and projects can be of any genre (narrative, documentary, experimental, etc.), but should emphasize or illuminate the uniqueness or character of a specific Memphis neighborhood.
