Did you enjoy watching Season One of NBCUniversal's made-in-Memphis tv series, Bluff City Law? What about the Hallmark movies shot in Memphis -- like Christmas at Graceland ? And NETFLIX's Uncorked is currently showcasing Memphis to the world as NETFLIX's #1 feature! We know you've seen the many commercials filmed locally --showcasing Memphis locations and highlighting the work of world-famous Memphis companies such as FedEx and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!
These successes were all made possible by hundreds of hard-working and skilled Memphis/Shelby County crew people - who now find themselves out of work. By donating today, you'll help them survive the COVID-19 crisis. And, you'll support the future of filmmaking in Memphis.
As soon as the donations total our first fundraising goal of $5000, application forms for mini-grants for up to $500 will be posted. Applicants must prove 1) legal residency in Shelby County, 2) financial need, and 3) 2018 or 2019 income derived primarily from production work.
We're asking for your donation now! The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission Foundation - a 501c3 organization in existence since 1985 - has established a fund to assist our professional Memphis & Shelby County crew who depend on film/tv production for their living. Please donate today - no amount is too small - the dollars will add up! Thank you.
