Attention Grizz Nation. Vote now and assist us in choosing our first annual, Indie Memphis Grizz Grant Fan-Favorite award winner.

Earlier this year, five local, independent, Memphis film-makers received grants and produced Grizzlies short films around the theme “The Female Fan Experience” and we need your help to select your favorite.

All five films were previewed at the Indie Memphis Film Festival, Nov. 6. The preview audience votes along with fan votes will help us determine our first Fan-Favorite award winner.

The winning film and film maker will be announced November 20th prior to the game when the Grizzlies host the Portland Trail Blazers with the winning film-maker being recognized in-arena that night. All fans that vote will be entered into a drawing to win an autographed team-signed binder.  So scroll down, give these short films a watch, vote for your favorite and share with your friends via your social platforms!

You may vote as many times as you’re willing to post to your social platforms BUT make sure to include the provided hashtag  below for each film in your post, or your vote won’t count.

A Memphis Grizzlies short film.

Erica and Danielle aren’t just huge Grizzlies fans—they’re both single mothers of three. And when all of your time, energy, and heart goes into raising a family, Memphis’ hometown team is more than just a pastime.

First Team All Family.

A young girl walks home from school, dreaming of trying out for the Grizzline, finding the heartbeat of her city along the way.

Grit. Grind. Apocalypse.

What’s Inside the Cage

Watch the short film that inspired the Indie Memphis Grizz Grants.

"What's Inside the Cage," is a short film by native Memphian Suzannah Herbert that won the Hometowner Award for Best Documentary Short at the 2015 Indie Memphis Film Festival. The six-minute film chronicles, in part, the impact of the Grizz Girls on girls in Memphis who otherwise lack relatable local "celebrity" role models.
