Casting call for art film

CASTING CALL for a short artistic film to be shot in Memphis in late July to early August, 2015.

“White Room” is a short surreal, impressionistic film that pivots around the extreme emotional state of a young woman getting stood-up on her wedding day and how she is empowered in the process.

10 men and women are needed as extras for a dream sequence. They should be able to play ages 20-50.

Dancers and kinetic/fit people who are comfortable repeating physical actions wearing business suits, tights, or dressed in draped robes are also sought.

There will be no spoken lines. There will be a half day of filming with minimal prior rehearsal. Actors will be paid. If selected, you’ll sign a release form prior to filming and will be paid at the end of the shoot day.

If you are interested in participating in this experimental film collaboration, please email your photo with contact information to:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

18th annual Indie Memphis Film Festival set for Nov. 3-10

Indie Memphis Film Festival board president/interim executive director Ryan Watt announced earlier this week a longer, newly formatted festival for 2015. It will be held from Nov. 3-10 and be headquartered, as last year, at Malco's Studio on the Square and Circuit Playhouse for weekend screenings. However, weeknight showings will be at other locations around Memphis.

The investment banking firm Duncan-Williams Inc. returns as presenting sponsor of the festival for the fifth year. The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission has been a backer of the festival since its start.

Indie Memphis has $11,000 in IndieGrants for local filmmakers this year. The application and more information are available at indiememphis.com/indiegrants. Filmmakers who want to submit to the festival can go to filmfreeway.com or withoutabox.com. The entry deadline is Aug. 7. ArtsMemphis is making it possible for Mid-South filmmakers to submit for free until July 17.
