Getting to know you with Daniel Morrow

Without volunteers, a film festival would not have a chance at being successful. As we gear up for the 7th annual Oxford Film Festival, we thought we would welcome you to some of our film fest family, the volunteers that return every year and some new faces. Welcome Daniel Morrow.

Q: Tell us a little about who you are (retired, where you work, mom, good cook, etc)

A: Web developer for the Ole Miss Alumni Association, free-lance web developer, founder/producer of Music in the Hall and lover of locally grown/produced food.

Q: How many years have you volunteered with the festival?

A: Since year one.

Q: What prompted you to get involved with the festival?

A: The charm of the festival organizers. And the parties.

Q: In what areas of the festival do you volunteer?

A: Have volunteered in lots of areas from screening to merch table to party host.

Q: Favorite experience or memory of previous festivals?

A: The kiddy pool full of beer at Micah's party during one of the early festivals. Getting goose bumps and teary eyes when Darius and the guys came up front after Darius Goes West.

Q: What have been some of your favorite movies in previous festivals?

A: Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story, Darius Goes West, Fallen Angel (Gram Parsons Documentary), The Ride and all the shorts at the awards ceremonies. The awards ceremony is the best part of every festival.
