Last Friday night at the outdoor street party in Overton Square, 29 Hometowner videos and 18 videos from artists outside the Memphis area competed for trophies, prize money, and bragging rights. The winner of the national competition, announced at the awards show on Saturday night, was director Marcin Starzecki's video for "BWA" by soniamiki.


The Hometowner music video award went to director Quintin Lamb's "I'M A GOD" video for TELISU.

The music video jury awarded a special jury prize to Lawrence Matthews, aka Don Lifted, for "Harbor Hall"—which, not coincidentally, was also the 2016 Music Video Monday video of the year.


The Indie Memphis Film Festival concludes 6:00 PM tonight at the Orpheum Theatre's Halloran Centre with a screening of short films made with funds from  the 2016 Grizz Grant competition. These works by Memphis filmmakers celebrate the Memphis Grizzlies' female fan experience. The festival's closing film is Tip of My Tongue by Lynne Sachs, a longtime favorite director at Indie Memphis. Sachs' experimental documentary examines the nature of memory as a group of friends gather at her New York apartment to piece together the last five decades of their lives.
