Malco Studio Cinema

Hollywood South revisits Oxford Film Festival 2012

OXFORD TOWN – Hollywood South syndicated columnist Jamie O’Quinn (pictured here) takes a fond look back at the 2012 Oxford Film Festival held last month at the Malco Studio Cinema. It’s her opinion that while the selection of films chosen for viewing (at OFF) is an integral part of a festival, it’s the people in attendance who are the greatest attraction. “From film producers, directors, screenwriters, musicians, actors, crew to volunteers, the interactions with these creative and passionate people remain the most intriguing part of the experience,” O’Quinn states in her column. Share O’Quinn’s memorable retrospective of this year’s film festival on Page 12 in Oxford Town issue No. 970. (March 15, 2012)

‘The Hanging of Big Todd Wade’

OXFORD TOWN – Oxford Film Freak Melanie Addington is a sucker for film … any film … especially when it’s produced in Oxford and Lafayette County.
