The 10th Annual Crossroads Film Festival

April 2-5, 2009
4 Days, 70+ Films, Music & Workshops
Regal Parkway Place Theatre, Jackson, MS

If you think you know Mississippi ... think again! Jackson, Mississippi is the cultural crossroads of the south (hence the name - Crossroads Film Festival) and is the place where all the good stuff gets thrown together. This is where the music of delta bluesman Robert Johnson and literary innovation runs straight into the home of the international ballet competition, to make a vibrant, one-of-a-kind culture full of down-homestyle and cinematic grace. 

We are home to Tennessee Williams, Willie Morris, Eudora Welty, William Faulkner, James Earl Jones, Oprah Winfrey, Morgan Freeman, and some of the world’s greatest historians, photographers, and musicians. We are also home to some real quirky and creative folks, a little southern hospitality, fried catfish, sweet tea, and a film festival to rival the best of them. Come see us, and we will show you a great time.

The Crossroads Film Society presents the 10th Annual Crossroads Film Festival.
