The  Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission were an integral part of the production of several of the films.

"Undefeated" is a documentary centering on three underprivileged student-athletes from Memphis' Manassas High School and the inspiration they need to not only overcome their bleak surroundings, but also to win the first playoff game in the school’s 110-year history.

"Losers Take All" is an indie rock comedy set in Memphis, circa 1986. The film follows The Fingers, who are formed when two average punks recruit two reluctant metal heads into their band. The soundtrack was recorded in Memphis at Scott Bomar's Electraphonic Recording studio with Marshall Crenshaw.

"Woman's Picture," an anthology film written and directed by Memphian Brian Pera and inspired by classic women's films of the 1930s, '40s and '50s. The three-part story stars Ann Magnuson, Memphian Amy Lavere and Calpernia Addams.

"Losers Take All," in addition to being a client project of the Film Commission, is a participant in The Memphis & Shelby County Film Commission/MemphisED Production Training Program. The innovative program, created by Film Commissioner Linn Sitler, offers a refund of local wages to the production company in exchange for on-the-job training of local crew.

Thursday's screening of "Undefeated" is sold out.Please check the Indie Memphis Website here for availability of other films.
