On Location: MEMPHIS has announced the official selection for its annual international film and music festival to be held April 19-22.

The festival will be held at Malco Paradiso, Malco’s Studio on the Square and Malco Ridgeway Four.

The categories include feature films, documentaries, live action shorts, animated films, music videos and student-created films at the collegiate level.

In addition to the selected films, the festival will include several special screenings, including “Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace,” a documentary that explores how President Jimmy Carter, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar El-Sadat worked to broker a peace treaty in the Middle East.

Other screenings – including a Bollywood event, a Hispanic cinema night and a senior film event – will be announced later.

The festival also will include a music lineup, workshops and panels.

This year, along with the official selections, which qualify to win juried awards, the festival will allow filmgoers to vote for the Fan Favorites Award.

All official selections can be found at www.onlocationmemphis.org. Passes that include entry to all films, parties, workshops and panels are $60.
