Unaccustomed as I am to tooting my own horn, allow me to flog my own entries in the Indie Memphis Film Festival.
Two shorts are in there, both having won awards at the Li'l Film Festival sponsored by livefrommemphis.com.
"Happy Artistic Freedom Day" stars Amber O'Daniels and Markus Seaberry in the story of a woman who just wants to be able to do her art. Despite the consequences. It won both the juried award and the audience choice award last December.
And "No Shades of Gray" has some fun with CA columnist Wendi Thomas' effort this last Spring to get Three 6 Mafia disinvited from the Beale Street Music Festival. The rollicking musical won the audience favorite award and stars LaVita Brooks, Markus Seaberry and Joseph B. Smith.
Happy Artistic Freedom Day is screening at noon Sunday and 3:05 pm Tuesday.
No Shades of Gray screens at 5:15 pm Sunday and 1:10 pm Wednesday.
All showings are the Malco's Studio on the Square.
I also appear in the locally produced features "Tricks," "The Book of Noah" and "Unhinged." The IMFF program is here.
