“On a whim I helped some friends produce a movie, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, that led to me co-founding a production company. We produced six feature films – and that’s what led to me seeking out Indie Memphis, volunteering, eventually joining the board, and I got hooked. This was my favorite event. . . I feel so lucky to be director, because this was literally my most favorite thing in Memphis.”
That’s Indie Memphis Executive Director Ryan Watt, talking his time about ten years ago when he first started getting involved with the festival that the Memphis Business Journal described as an annual blockbuster.
