The 14th annual On Location: Memphis International Film & Music Fest continues today and Sunday with film, music and workshops.
The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission has been a sponsor of the festival — which offers features, documentaries, live action shorts, animation and music videos — for all 14 years of the event.
Film Commissioner Linn Sitler was on the "Filmmaking As An Economic Development Engine" panel at noon. The Commission assisted on Avarice, written and directed by Rachel M. Taylor and produced by Dan Baker.
Also on Saturday is Narcissus, a Lithuanian film featuring former Memphis Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Susanna Perry Gilmore.
Tomorrow, three new short films from the University of Memphis will be screened: Scenes from King Lear co-directed by Anita Jo Lenhart and Steven J. Ross, the Brian Fruits-Stephen Hildreth collaboration comedy Yellow Light (Lauren Scott and Katie Zisson in lead roles) and David Goodman's documentary meditation on mortality, Ash/Requiem.
Closing the festival are: The Last White Knight, Canadian Paul Salzman’s documentary about meeting the former Klansman who assaulted him in Mississippi during the Civil Rights struggle, and Midnight’s Children, an adaption of Salman Rushdie’s book that tells the story of two children growing up in India post-British rule.
