For more information about the LI’L FILM FEST go here or call: (901) 523-9763. Li’l Film Fest is a new kind of festival, highlighting local talent while showcasing interesting happenings around town.

Here’s how the festival works: Every 3 months LFM staff members announce a new theme to the filmmaking community. Filmmakers then put their own unique spin on producing a short film. The theme for the second Li’l Film Fest is barbecue, meaning that each film submission must somehow relate to barbecue. The winner(s) will be awarded a $200 cash prize and will also be guaranteed a spot in the next Indie Memphis Film Festival. Additionally, the li'l films must not exceed 5 minutes in length.

Live From Memphis™ is a grassroots organization representing Memphis music, film and the arts. We support and promote local musicians, filmmakers, artists, and industry professionals who are the lifeblood of the Memphis creative scene. It is our goal to connect creatives, grow opportunities, and gain exposure for our creative culture.
