We have hired our first full-time director, Melanie Addington, to run the festival and expand our reach to monthly programming and support of the OxFilm Society.
A new Board of Directors was also formed which includes: Wayne Andrews, Donna Ruth Roberts, Bethany Cooper, Chris Offutt, Hudson Hickman, Jon Maynard, Meaghin Burke, Sparky Reardon, Ralph Vance, Sonia Thompson, Tim Burkhead and Joy Jones.
In the film festival's 12-year history it has become a major event for the City of Oxford, drawing famous actors, directors, and assorted media to Oxford. The role of the festival has evolved into an organization that hosts movie screenings throughout the year and promotes North Mississippi as an ideal location for filmmaking.
This expanded role for the festival creates a strong positive impact on the cultural and business community in Oxford. The festival is currently in transition from an all-volunteer organizations to one with year round director who will promote the film industry in North Mississippi.
We invite you to help us reach our goals for growth in 2016.
