New Television Outlets for Filmmakers and Film Lovers
Xfinity subscribers will soon be able to see short films and other quality content shown at film festivals in the Southeastern United States, including Indie Memphis.
The Film Festival Collective includes festivals in nine states and will be available at no additional cost to Xfinity subscribers in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Filmmakers who participated in past years with Indie Memphis will work with the Collective to lend works to the On Demand collection for a limited time.
For people without cable, a local television station will be offering something similar. Tina Tilton Entertainment Network (TTEN) has announced that Memphis film producers can take advantage of free airtime for one month but you must sign up by August 15, 2014.
Its programming includes classic cartoons and television series, children's programming as well as a few local Memphis-made movies, stage plays, music, comedy, reality, sports, kids shows, cartoons, modeling, competition, real estate, etc.
TTEN, which has been on the air since May, is at Channel 46.1, W46EF.
