Indie Memphis Award Winners 

Local filmmakers Alan Spearman and Lance Murphy were the big winners over the weekend as award recipients were announced at the Indie Memphis Film Festival. The duo took home the award for Best Documentary (and its $400 cash prize) in the festival's Hometowner Competition for their film Nobody, and followed that up by winning the Kodak Tennessee Filmmaker's Award, which comes with $1,000 in film stock. Nobody screens Thursday, October 19th, at 8:45 p.m., with Ron Franklin performing at an after-party at the Gibson Showcase.

The other Hometowner winners this weekend were Just the Two of Us for Best Narrative Feature ($600), Ad Man for Best Narrative Short ($400), The Importance of Being Russell for the festival's Ron Tibbett Excellence in Filmmaking Award ($500), and What Goes Around ... director Rod Pitts for the Promising Filmmaker Award.
