Oxford Film Festival of Oxford, Mississippi has been awarded a $4,500 grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC). This grant is a portion of the $1.34 million in grants the Commission will award in 2014 and 2015 and will be used to support the independent film festival.
The grants are made possible by continued funding from the Mississippi State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
“The creative economy has never been more vibrant than it is today in the communities across Mississippi,” stated Dr. Tom Pearson, executive director at MAC. “This agency is honored to play a small role in assisting these organizations to continue their work reinforcing the value of the arts and the role they play in creative place-making and economic development.”
“We are grateful for the continued support we have received from MAC.,” Michelle Emanuel, director of operations for Oxford Film Festival, said. “We use these funds to pay for equipment and venue rentals; literally, the festival could not happen without them.”
