I am so OVER THE MOON to announce that we’ll be joining the unbelievable lineup at the 2014 Indie Memphis Film Festival.
The festival runs over Halloween weekend, and Alexis and I will both be there. Our screening is Saturday, Nov 1st at 4pm. Details and tickets here.
We can’t wait. We really can’t wait. Plus (obviously) we’ll be taking day trips to Graceland and Dollywood, and please let me know any other Memphis recs if you’ve got ’em.
In additionally wonderful news, two of my favorite women also have films in the Indie Memphis competition slate. Summer of Blood stars our own extraordinary Anna Margaret Hollyman. I saw this at Tribeca and it’s funny and dark and smart and weird and I loved it. (It begins with Anna Margaret proposing to someone, so is it any wonder I love it so much? I did recently send her a text that said I wanted to be the Joel Coen to her Frances McDormand, so.)
And then there’s Thou Wast Mild and Lovely, which features the outrageously talented Kristin Slaysman. I saw this movie at BAM a few months ago, and I adored it, and it’s stuck with me in a very big way. Haunting, for sure. Dreamy and tense and utterly beautiful to look at. Astonishing performances abound. It led to the most interesting post-film conversations I’ve had in ages.
See you in Memphis!
