Shoot & Splice: Filmmaking Within Your Means

Shoot & Splice: Filming on Film

Many filmmakers might argue that the film vs. digital debate is dead in the water and that digital has finally won out for good. But many of the major releases in 2017 were actually shot entirely, or at least partially, on film, including Wonder Woman, The Post, Justice League, Phantom Thread, The Florida Project and I, Tonya. Join us for a discussion about shooting in both formats, why a filmmaker in 2018 might choose to shoot on film, and where to find resources to do so.

Shoot & Splice is a monthly forum for filmmakers presented collaboratively by Crosstown Arts & Indie Memphis.

Talking Back to the Screen: Feminism & Film Criticism

Monthly filmmaking forum presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts
April topic: Hair & Makeup for Film with Alicia George

In Alice Bolin’s upcoming book, Dead Girls, she writes about moving to L.A. and seeing the city through a white male literary lens, and needing to trust her own eyes rather than what she’s read. Miriam Bale’s path through the male-dominated world of film criticism at New York newspapers was similarly one of learning to trust her own eyes. The two writers will have a dialogue about different ways to engage with writing about film, a misogynistic industry, as women. Dead Girls (which covers Twin Peaks to True Detective) is an essay collection out in June 2018 from William Morrow/ HarperCollins. Alice Bolin teaches nonfiction at the University of Memphis.

Miriam Bale is new Senior Programmer of the Indie Memphis Film Festival.
