Last night's opening art exhibit of "Shooting Robert King," a bold collection of photojournalism by the Memphis native, offered a preview of what's to come Thursday night as a documentary by the same name takes the screen.

Early arrivals to this year's festival included critic ELVIS MITCHELL and "The River, the Mountain and the Road" director MICHAEL HARRING.  We'll have more photos of last night's event here soon; meantime, go to our Flickr stream here.

There are two showings of "Shooting Robert King" tonight.  See the schedule for show times and to purchase tickets.
