I have a system with Snow Leopard and iMovie 09.

If I upgrade my system to OSX Lion, will it also upgrade my iMovie 09 to iMovie 11?

No, iMovie is part of the iLife suite of programs, not the OS itself. It's only included bundled with the OS when you buy a new Mac.

  • iMovie 11 is available on the Mac App Store (for $15). It says it only requires 10.6.7, so upgrading your iMovie and OS X should be completely independent.
