Who is Oxford Film freak?
My name is Melanie Addington. I write full-time as a staff writer for the Oxford Eagle and write a weekly film column for the Oxford Town, the local entertainment magazine.
I also am the assistant director for the Oxford Film Festival in Oxford, Miss., however, my blog is not related to the fest. I do blog about fest stuff some times over at the film fest site at http://www.oxfordfilmfest.com.
Why did I start this blog?
I began it with the intention of reviewing old movies I had seen by their release date. But then I started writing about upcoming movie news and events. I also try to keep up with what events are happening in the region. Plus, I just post random stuff for the heck of it. And, I go to a lot of film festivals..so, occasionally, I will post about those.
Have news about film in Mississippi or the mid-south?
You can e-mail me at anytime with comments, questions, press releases at melanie.addington (at) gmail.com.
Have a film you’d like reviewed?
Oxford Film Freak accepts submissions of all genres, lengths and languages (if subtitled) and films from those that do not yet have distribution. E-mail me at melanie.addington (at) gmail.com.
Want to become a film freak?
I encourage others who live in the North Mississippi area to write for the blog. If you have seen a film that you want to tell others about (or warn them about), please become a contributor. If you know of a great movie event – write about it! If you know of Mississippians in the film industry and would like to interview them, write a feature, tell us what they are doing – please do so!
