A few points of note:

  • This year’s festival runs from Oct. 24-29 at different venues near Overton Square.
  • Dozens of films will be screened. Check out the full, long list here.
  • Many Memphis-based filmmakers will have works featured, and many filmmakers will be traveling from out of town

While there are dozens of great films that will be playing, here are few of note:

  • "Anatomy of a Fall" won best film awards at Cannes
  • “All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt", distributed by A24, is from Raven Jackson, who was awarded the 2019 Indie Memphis Black Filmmaker Residency for Screenwriting
  • "May December" with Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore is a big awards contender 
  • "Black Barbie: A Documentary" tells the story on the first Barbie made to represent a Black woman
