The 2nd Annual Indie Memphis Youth Film Fest is an all-day event dedicated to showcasing short films and videos from regional and national youth.

Saturday, September 9th at the Halloran Centre at the Orpheum.

The event will also feature several presentations and workshops from high-profile guests. Last year's inaugural event included Memphis-based Hollywood director, Craig Brewer, plus Chris Strompolos & Eric Zala, who as kids between the ages of 12 and 17 shot one of the most famous fan-films ever – a shot-for-shot no budget remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
