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

Kentucker Audley's debut feature Team Picture, in which the filmmaker stars as a young man negotiating the conflicting identies of his family life and his newfound adulthood, won what has become the festival's signature prize, the Hometowner award for best local feature ($600). 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
