Indie Memphis Names Its Winner

The 11th incarnation of Indie Memphis Film Festival has named its award winners. The festival runs until Thursday, October 16th, at Studio on the Square. Built into the fest's week-two calendar were a number of TBAs, so that award-winning films could have encore screenings. For the updated schedule, go to indiememphis.com.

Audience award winners will be announced at the Music Video Showcase after-party on Thursday, at 9 p.m. (the showcase starts at 7 p.m.)
