Indie Memphis Award Winners 

Congratulations to the award winners at this year's Indie Memphis Film Festival, announced last weekend at Studio on the Square.

Other Hometowner winners included Angel Ortiz's disturbing torture-themed four-minute First Amendment: Cancelled in the narrative short category ($400) and Joann Self's 12-minute Voices of Jericho for best documentary ($400).

In the non-local Soul of Southern Film category, Broke Sky won best narrative feature ($750); the
