ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
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 runs straight into the home of the International Ballet Competition. 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.
The Crossroads Film Festival is also home to some real quirky and creative folks, fried catfish, sweet tea, and a film festival to rival the best of them. Come challenge Mississippi’s creative class & be showered in Southern hospitality. There’ll be cash prizes, Southern celebrities, workshops, daily receptions and nightly jukin’ with live music. It’s all about your story.
