After two days of crowded screenings, The Memphis Film Prize has awarded director Matteo Servente's "We Go On" as the best film of the festival.

"We Go On" is written by Corey Mesler, Memphis novelist and proprietor of Burke's Books in Midtown. The film stars Curtis C. Jackson as a man in hospice care, Bill Baker as his loquacious  friend, and Emma Cystal as a perhaps overly friendly nurse. The film was shot by Ryan Earl Parker and produced by Joseph Carr.

The $10,000 prize winner was determined by a combination of audience and jury votes. This is the second Memphis Film Prize awarded, after last year's winner "He Could Have Gone Pro" by McGehee Montieth. Read more about the Film Prize in this week's Memphis Flyer.
