Dance documentary Pharaohs Of Memphis completed a sweep of the 2014 Indie Memphis Hometowner Awards by taking home the Audience Award for Best Feature, a remarkable achievement for first-time director Phoebe Driscoll, a 22-year-old senior at Rhodes College. The just-announced awards were determined by audience members who gave the films they saw over the four-day festival grades from A to F.
