Last chance to vote

Here's an item from John Beifuss in the CA:

To quote Snuffy Smith: Time's a-wastin'! Because five video finalists now await your view and your vote at the ArtsMemphis Website in the "Our Vibe. Our City. On Film" contest, which ends Monday.

Selected last month by Web site voters from 12 semifinalists, the five short films are "Indie Dreams," by Donald Meyers; "Shredder," by Jon W. Sparks; "Blues," by Harmony Stewart; "The Warble Atelier," by Andy Strong; and "I Am Art" by Billy Worley.

Each under five minutes in length, the films are intended to promote the idea that Memphis is home to a vibrant art community with its own special "vibe."

On April 30, ArtsMemphis will host an awards celebration and screening of the top five films at Malco's Studio on the Square. First prize is $2,000, and a slot in October's Indie Memphis Film Festival. Second prize is $750; third prize is $500.
