This year's On Location: Memphis International Film Festival opens Thursday night. There will be films, music, and a party every night. Filmmakers, producers, actors, and a surprise celebrity here and there are expected to attend. More than 90 films representing 20 countries and the U.S. will be screened.
Thursday, the festival opens at 7:30 pm at Malco's Paradiso Theater, with a screening of the new blues documentary, DELTA RISING, filmed at Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, MS.
If you have a full-fest pass, you can attend, at no additional charge, the screening and the after party at the Ground Zero Club on Beale Street (approximately 9:00 pm), Freeman's not-yet-open-to-the-public Ground Zero Blues Club Memphis, featuring the Queen of Beale Street, Ms. Ruby Wilson.
If you do not have a full-fest pass, do not wish to purchase one, you may still attend the screening and after party by purchasing a Membership for $20.00 each before the screening, plus screening tickets.
You can attend only the screening for $8.50, if individual tickets are available. No after party included.
Full-fest passes were $60, and were available online. You should have checked my Film Festival Page earlier this month, because fest passes go up to $70 today, and will only be available at the door. I'm not sure if the student pass ($30) will increase. Individual screening tickets are $8.50 each. They, Memberships, and full-fest passes, will be available now only at the door of each event. Available tickets on a first-come basis.
