The Indie Memphis Film Festival announced the full slate for their 2019 incarnation at the top of October, offering up some diverse and compelling titles for the anticipated run between October 30th – November 4th. With a heavy-hitting list of titles such as Agnès Varda’s final film Varda By Agnés, Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady On Fire, and the highly anticipated Harriet, eager film festival fans will have plenty to keep their hands full.

This year’s very exciting special presentations include Jim Jarmusch and his latest work, The Dead Don’t Die, in conversation with The New Yorker’s Richard Brody. In addition, there will be a Halloween screening of the classic Blackula.

“Our program this year is full of eccentric characters, and I think Memphis audiences are going to show these films some love,” says Indie Memphis Artistic Director Miriam Bale. “Our narrative films, especially, are dominated by stories told by women directors, especially women of color, as it should be.”

The Indie Memphis Film Festival is currently underway, dazzling audiences of the east American coast with glam, gore, and the thrills of cinema. For more information, please visit
