This year's Magnolia Film Festival was a rousing success. Affectionately known as "The Mag", it supports the film industry within Mississippi, another state experiencing film growth. The festival is definitely a regional film showcase event, and was the state's first film festival. Since then, Oxford, Tupelo and Crossroads film festivals have also come a long way.
The President of the festival, Michael Williams, is a friend and collaborator to us. We saw lots of films over the three days, which took place in Starkville, MS. Some good, some great. The venue and volunteers were (and generally are) very friendly. It was well organized and I'm sure we'll be back next year.
