The 9th Annual Crossroads Film Festival

Crossroads_image_for_signs_2

The blog will be unattended until El Niño Bien blows into Jackson on the evening of 7 April, as I’ll be attending (and working) the 9th annual Crossroads Film Festival, here in the Capitol City. It’s the premier southern film festival, and I was proud and honored to serve on this year’s screening and workshops committees.

As with last year‘s festival, I’ll make a small pitch:

The Crossroads Film Society presents its 9th Annual Crossroads Film Festival, incorporating 70+ films, local and national recording artists, pre- and post- parties and a variety of workshops and panels. Each afternoon kicks off with a Meet & Greet Reception for filmmakers and pass-holders, providing multiple opportunities for fans to visit with filmmakers. Each evening ends with music at downtown venues, including Latin, indie rock, trip-hop, roots rock and 70’s soul group, Wiley & the Checkmates.

Anchor films include the Sundance award-winning, Mississippi-shot Ballast, showings of Control, Lars and the Real Girl, and loads of shorts, documentaries, features, and oddities from around the world. If you’re anywhere near Mississippi tomorrow or during this weekend, I strongly encourage you to check it out.

End of sales pitch. See you next week.
