CHECK OUT GOTHAMS’ BEST FILM NOT PLAYING AT A THEATER NEAR YOU NOMINEES AT MOMA THIS WEEKEND
Beginning tomorrow night and running until Monday evening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City is the screening series of the films nominated for this year’s Gotham Independent Film Awards‘ Best Film Not Playing At A Theater Near You.
One of our favorite events leading up to the Gothams, as the nominees are chosen by the editors of the magazine (as well as MoMA’s associate curator Joshua Siegel), these five films currently do not have theatrical distribution but have received a lot of attention on the festival circuit this year. The hope with this award is that these films get the notice they deserve. The the winner, which will be announced on awards night Nov. 28, will receive a one week run at Cinema Village, ad support in the New York Times and a $15,000 grant.
The nominees this year are (see trailers below):
Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same
Dir. Madeleine Olnek
Dir. Sophia Takal
The Redemption of General Butt Naked
Dirs. Eric Strauss & Daniele Anastasion
Scenes of a Crime
Dirs. Blue Hadaegh & Grover Babcock
Dir. Mark Jackson
