As a long-time Indie Memphis Film Festival attendee, I was thrilled when an opportunity presented itself to join in the leadership of the organization. After a few years in the trenches, I was able to become Board President. The cultural richness of Memphis is abundant and I am honored to be able to help contribute to an organization that helps our local artists and patrons thrive.
By embarking on a multi-year strategic plan, we are able to asses the successes and challenges we face. After our most successful Festival ever in 2016, we are eagerly looking forward to presenting our 20th anniversary Festival in November 2017. That being said, we must ensure our growth is carefully planned and executed and that we stay true to our values of artistic integrity, inclusiveness and creating a sense of community through independent film.
An exciting new development for us is the launch of our Indie Wednesday program, which will provide year-round independent film opportunities. As with all new programs, we will be evaluating all aspects of the program and making necessary adjustments.
On the macro level, we will be delving into our marketing, governance and development opportunities. More specifically, we have been looking into enhancing our youth program, creating an endowment and increasing the amount of grants we have for local filmmakers.
