The 14th annual On Location: MEMPHIS International Film & Music Fest runs from April 25-28 this year. The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission is a sponsor of the Fest, which returns to Malco Studio on the Square this year.
After the opening night kick-off at the Malco Paradiso in East Memphis on Thursday, April 25th, the film portion of the festival will shift to Studio on the Square the following day. Wall-to-wall films are scheduled through Sunday April 28th. This year is shaping up to be one of the most diverse festivals ever, with films screening from artists based in Memphis and around the United States, as well as nearly a dozen international countries.
“Studio on the Square has been host to numerous film festivals, and continues to host special screenings for independent filmmakers throughout the year,” said Jimmy Tashie, Executive VP of Malco Theatres, Inc. and Chairman of the Board of the Film Commission. “It gives us great pleasure to see both young and seasoned filmmakers coming to town with their film projects as they hope to entertain and enlighten new audiences while traveling the festival circuit.”
