The 2011 Oxford Film Festival came to a close last Sunday night, and now the ballots for audience favorite are in. Mississippi Innocence, the non-competition documentary by filmmaker Joe York, took home the top prize for overall audience favorite. Two years in the making and produced with Tucker Carrington and the Mississippi Innocence Project at the UM School of Law, Mississippi Innocence tells the compelling story of Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer, two men who combined spent over thirty years behind bars for crimes they didn’t commit.
Also winning by audience vote was the music video Cold Red Clay, a song by T.B. Ledford, video directed by Ron Blaylock.
