The Oxford Film Festival, through a generous grant from North Mississippi Hills Heritage Area Alliance, wants to pay a filmmaker $2,500 and use of OxFilm Society equipment to get the movie finished!
Story ideas will be accepted through April 30. The documentary must be about literature and its impact on the Hills area. Whether a look at a particular subject, writer, genre or about current or past literature, the film must only be a look at "literary" concepts. The best idea will be selected by May 15 and the filmmaker will have until December 15 to complete the project.
Documentaries are preferred and no limit on time but shorts are recommended.
The national heritage area covers all of Marshall, Benton, Tippah, Alcorn, Tishomingo, Lafayette, Union, Pontotoc, Lee, Itawamba, Calhoun, Chickasaw and Monroe counties, and those portions of Desoto, Tate, Panola, Yalobusha, Grenada and Montgomery counties to the east of Interstate 55 and north of Mississippi Highway 14.
