Lance Bass to be honored at Mississippi Film Festival

Mississippi native Lance Bass is coming home to the Magnolia state on Saturday, November 8, to participate in the Mississippi International Film Festival (MIFF) at the Tinseltown Cinema in Pearl.

Bass will introduce his documentary film, “MISSISSIPPI I AM,” and receive recognition from the state of Mississippi as part of its “Year of the Creative Economy: Mississippi Homecoming” celebration.

Earlier this year, Governor Phil Bryant declared 2014 as the Year of the Creative Economy.

It's a celebration of the creative arts that have a significant impact on the Mississippi state economy. 

Bass was born in Laurel, Miss. and grew up in Ellisville and Clinton.

He rose to fame in the 1990's as the bass singer of boy band 'NSYNC, which sold more than 50 million albums together.

Films at the MIFF begin on Saturday, November 8, at 11 am and run back-to-back until midnight. Admission for the day is $6. The popular Jerry Katz Acting Workshop will take place on Saturday at 1 pm and 3 pm, with a cost of $10 per person.
