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.

Bass Pro Shops has issued this casting call:

Do you love the outdoors? Do you fish, hunt, camp and just love to be "out there?”

Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid is looking for people just like you to take part in filming scenes in our new store.  Acting experience not necessary.

We want people who are familiar with the outdoors and the sports that Bass Pro serves to be on-camera shoppers and customers of this fabulous new store.

The project is being assisted by the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission.

Background and Featured Extras needed during filming in mid-May. Half days (6-hour block) and full days (12-hour block). The schedule is still to be determined.

Families with children and adults of ALL AGES will be selected. Please forward CURRENT photograph, availability, and contact information including mobile phone and e-mail to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

If selected, you will be contacted by email for more detailed information about what to wear, etc. Extras will arrive “camera ready” as there will not be a make up artist or wardrobe assistant for enhancements.

ALL EXTRAS WILL BE PAID at the time of filming. Extras will be required to sign talent release and all under 18 must have a legal guardian to sign for them.

Thank you for your interest and availability.

DO NOT contact the Bass Pro store directly as ALL production planning is being handled through a Memphis production company. Store personnel will not be able to answer any questions about this filming event.
