Virtual Indie Meme Festival
Since 2016, the Indie Meme Film Festival has hosted international independent film screenings in Austin. For the first time, the festival is going online and hosting virtual screenings this year.
“The virtual Indie Meme 2020 festival was born from a deep desire to continue serving our community in ways that have been the driving force since [the festival’s] inception. Our hope, of course, is that in these times of self isolation and uncertainty we can bring our members the joy of some well made films,” said Supriya Kini, marketing chair for the Indie Meme Film Festival, in an email to Community Impact Newspaper.
The virtual film festival over two weekends will show more than 10 films from South Asian filmmakers, including fiction and documentary features. These screenings will be followed by discussions with filmmakers, cast and crew of some of the films hosted over Zoom sessions. Showtimes vary. Free for members; annual membership begins at $35. www.indiememe.org
