Brighid Wheeler (Indie Memphis)

What is the New Break Even?: Redefining Success from An Experiential POV


Brighid Wheeler has been (willingly) held captive in the film festival world for most of her adult life. Having run the gamut from volunteer to THE ‘Queen B’ (nickname earned as Festival Coordinator), she currently serves as the Senior Programmer for the Indie Memphis Film Festival. Outside of the festival, you’ll most likely find her mentoring, guiding and encouraging the filmmakers in Memphis. She often attributes this as her main source of inspiration and what continues to drive her work at Indie Memphis. Brighid has served on countless juries and panels at festivals and conferences across the country and considers each experience an honor as it allows her the opportunity to support our current and next generation of storytellers.
