  1. THE MUSIC was hosted by the Memphis Songwriters Association and provided by local area songwriters & musicians. The music component added to the movie going experience at the On Location: Memphis 10th Annual international film festival.

    The Memphis songwriters association also worked with the On location: Memphis Board & committee to coordinate the first annual On Location: Memphis International Film Festival SONG CONTEST. MSA work with other local music industry organizations to promote the contest and reach out to local area artist to participate in the contest.

    This was the first year attempt to provide music and encourage filmakers and musicians to network and work toward future collaborations.

    The Memphis Songwriters, Musicians & friends devoted their time to seeing music was a constant element of the festival starting Thursday and ending Saturday.

    To all the musicians & friends that volunteered their time and beautiful music we are greatly appreciative.

    A very special thank you to our hard working sound crew (Sound donated by Belo & Beez "The Sound Team").

    We hope to continue to improve and refine the musical component of the festival in the years to come.

    Great job On Location: Memphis!!!!
