Memphis, representin'!

The 11th Indie Memphis Film Festival begins today in uhh, Memphis. Many of the films focus on and/or are influenced by the "rich cultural history" of rock and roll and Southern culture that began in Memphis in the mid '50s. This year there are over 100 films being showcased, including Johnny Cash's America, which sounds good to me.

The festival takes place at Malco's Studio on the Square on Thursday and runs through the 16th.

Find more out about Indie Memphis here, or buy your passes here, or see the film list here. Besides the Cash film, I will suggest (and by only having read their descriptions): Adventures of Power, At the Death House Door, The Frozen City, Full Moon Lightnin', Heavy Load, Hollywood Jerome, Ibid, I.O.U.S.A., Mammon, the Music Video Showcase, OMG/HaHaHa, Smokey, Song Sung Blue, Throw Down Your Heart, The Tribe and Valentine Shredders.

But don't take my word for it- I haven't seen any of these, or know anymore about them than what the descriptions say...I just picked out a few that interested me more than others, and ones that I thought might interest you. If you attend Indie Memphis, give us a shout and let us know what you saw and what you thought.
