As the IFP’s annual Gotham Awards approach, the organization has launched a charity auction containing, I have to say, some pretty cool items to bid on. Visits to the sets of True Blood and Bored to Death, for example, including meetings with their creators, Alan Ball and Jonathan Ames. A Boardwalk Empire set visit with Steve Buscemi. Tickets to Spider-Man on Broadway and a backstage meet with Julie Taymor. Theater going with Philip Seymour Hoffman. Fishing with Ed Burns. And, yes, ping pong with Susan Sarandon. Of course, proceeds support the IFP and its mission of supporting independent filmmakers through its year-round programs, its labs and the publication of this magazine. A complete list of items is posted below. If the above is of interest, check them out and, if you are able, please consider placing a bid.
