In an effort to raise money for their new live music initiative, the Oxford Film Festival announced a benefit concert for later this month.

The concert will be held at Proud Larry’s on Nov. 24 and feature music from several local musicians and bands.

“We are so excited to host this concert in order to raise funds to pay musicians to take part in the festival between move screenings this year,” said Melanie Addington, executive director of the Oxford Film Festival.
