Indie Memphis Student Shorts -- 4 pm Saturday, May 7 @ Memphis College of Art's Callicott Auditorium

Don't miss the first Indie Memphis Student Shorts (IMSS), sure to become an annual tradition!

Set to take place at 4 pm on Saturday, May 7 at the Memphis College of Art's Callicott Auditorium, the competitive showcase features the work of Memphis-area students from Overton High School, St. Agnes Academy, the Memphis College of Art, Rhodes College, and the University of Memphis. Admission is free and open to the public.

IMMS gives students an opportunity to meet and network with fellow students from other area institutions, and provides them with a "training wheels" experience for the festival circuit, offering a bit of friendly competition and a greater chance of public exposure.

Audience members will vote for their favorites, and a jury of industry professionals will present awards in multiple categories -- including "Best of Show," which includes a $100 cash prize.
