About

A. The Crossroads Film Society sponsors the Annual Crossroads Film Festival each April in Jackson, Mississippi. We are a multi-cultural, 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing access to international, national, and local film and video. We also encourage discussion and production for film and video, particularly as related to the cultural, educational and economic vitality of the state and region. Our society ’s objectives are met through year-round programming, including special events, lectures, workshops, and the annual Crossroads Film Festival.

The mission of the Crossroads Film Society is to celebrate the art of filmmaking in all of its diversity and depth. The Crossroads Film Society will facilitate and promote a broader spectrum of film and video for the community, will present and honor films and videos related to Mississippi and the South, and will provide educational opportunities and facilitate general discussions for film lovers and aspiring film makers.

Each year a special award, the Ruma Award for Most Promising Mississippi Filmmaker, is given to a talented hometown filmmaker.
