Indie Memphis Daily Pick (Saturday) 

The Indie Memphis Film Festival continues today with a live performance by the Alloy Orchestra, which will provide accompaniment to a screening of the Lon Chaney silent classic The Phantom of the Opera. (See Flyer story here.) But the real don’t-miss screening might be of Arkansas “outsider cinema” filmmaker Phil Chambliss, who has made short films in obscurity for decades only to recently become an art-world cause celebre. Three of Chambliss’ films will screen, beginning at 5:15 today at the Muvico Peabody Place theatre downtown. Read the Flyer’s take on Chambliss or check out a lengthy profile on the “Auteur from Arkansas” in the Nashville Scene from his 2004 debut at the Nashville Film Festival. For more information on the Indie Memphis Film Festival, see the festival Web site.
