Tonight, the 21st annual Indie Memphis Film Festival closes with a program that is always a highlight. The Hometowner Music Videos bloc contains 35 exceptional videos by Memphis artists and filmmakers.
At the awards ceremony last Saturday night, the Indie Memphis jury awarded Best Music Video to "Gomenake" by Someone Who Isn't Me (S.W.I.M), directed by Akis Papastathopoulos. Both the band and the filmmaker are from Athens, Greece.
The jury awarded two Hometowner videos: Honorable Mention went to "BW" by Weird Maestro, directed by your columnist, Christopher Scott McCoy. "BW" will make its world premiere tonight at the festival, and we'll feature it on Music Video Monday when Unapologetic Records is ready to drop it.
The Hometowner Jury Award winner is a Music Video Monday alumna: "I'm Yours" by Faith Evans Ruch. The video was helmed by Melissa Anderson Sweazy, who co-directed Good Grief, the documentary which pulled off a rare sweep of the jury and audience awards and the poster contest at Indie Memphis 2017.
Tune in tomorrow (after you vote) for a full list of winners from Indie Memphis 2018!
