Tupelo Film Fest gets new directors, date

TUPELO – Next year’s Tupelo Film Festival will mark several new changes for the event.

The festival has, in years past, been held at The Lyric in May under the direction of the Tupelo Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Next year, the 11th annual festival will take place April 17-19 at the Malco Theatre at the Tupelo Commons, and will be under the direction of a newly formed organization, the Tupelo Film Festival Society.

Submissions for the festival are now open and filmmakers can apply online at tupelofilmfestival.net.
