By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – A website listed the Tupelo Film Festival among the 10 Best Small Film Festivals in the country.
An article at livability.com cited the festival’s quick growth since 2004. The website also praised the Tupelo Film Commission’s 2009 decision to add a category for student filmmakers, and said such additions “keep the festival fresh while opening it up to more opportunities and exposure.”
The Tupelo event, which will be May 12-14 at the Lyric Theatre, was listed among festivals in Bend, Ore., Asheville, N.C., and Traverse City, Mich.
It was the only Mississippi festival featured. The article is located at livability.com/top-10/top-10-small-film-festivals.
