Indie Memphis rocks with an in-de-Muck doc

The notifications are going out now and we'll soon know which projects will be screened at the Indie Memphis Film Festival. I'll post 'em here when the full lineup is released, but if you're a filmmaker and you've been notified that you're in, let me know and I'll post the news with a link.

And in the shameless but robust spirit of being self- serving, I'll start with me: My 30-minute documen- tary "Memphis Muck" will be shown Oct. 16 at 8:30 pm at the Muvico in Peabody Place. Most of the doc was taped during a March 31 concert by Muck Sticky and has music and interviews with the philosophical, feel-good, R-rated musician/entertainer/actor as well as his other guests that night: El Dorado and the Ruckus, Taco & da Mofos and Mr. Safety.

From the Indie Memphis Web site:

Now in its ninth year, the Indie Memphis Soul of Southern Film Festival is a week-long event featuring films of a Southern persuasion. This is the nation’s only independent film festival focused on films relating to the American South. Works screened include films made in the South or by Southern filmmakers as well as films that deal with the Southern experience and themes that are particularly relevant to the South and Southerners.

The festival features screenings of more than 70 films, a juried competition with cash awards in several categories and a variety of panel discussions and lectures conducted by respected filmmakers, academics, authors and others from the industry.

All movies and events will take place at Muvico Peabody Place 22 Theaters, 150 Peabody Place in Downtown Memphis, unless noted otherwise.

Individual Tickets: $6; The Six-Pack: (six program passes) $25; Festival Pass: (unlimited entry plus Indie Memphis T-shirt or baseball cap) $60
