The Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) has announced the five nominees for the 3rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Audience Award. Voted on by film fans online, the Gotham Independent Film Audience Award is the only award at the annual Gothams for which the public has a vote. “For the third year, we are thrilled to continue IFP’s Gotham Independent Film Audience Award powered by Festival Genius,” said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of the IFP. “For the IFP, it is the perfect opportunity to offer five publicly lauded films, which have been spotlighted on the festival circuit by the viewing public, yet another platform to garner audience support. We are very proud to be able to offer an award that reflects the voice of collective film-goers as part of the Gotham Independent Film Awards.” The first round voting took place from October 18th-31st, during which 31 audience award-winning films from the top 50 US and Canadian film festivals were narrowed through online voting to the five films with the highest number of votes. Round two of voting on these five films begins on November 5th and will end November 18th at 11:59 pm EST, with the winner revealed at the Gotham Awards ceremony in New York on November 26th. Filmgoers can vote online for their favorite film here. The nominees: ARTIFACT Director: Bartholomew Cubbins Producers: Jared Leto, Emma Ludbrook BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD Director: Benh Zeitlin Producers: Michael Gottwald, Dan Janvey, Josh Penn BURN: ONE YEAR ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE BATTLE TO SAVE DETROIT Directors: Brenna Sanchez, Tom Putnam Producers: Brenna Sanchez, Tom Putnam THE INVISIBLE WAR Director: Kirby Dick Producers: Amy Ziering, Tanner King Barklow ONCE IN A LULLABY: THE PS 22 CHORUS STORY Director: Jonathan Kalafer Producers: Steve Kalafer, Jonathan Kalafer, Bao Nguyen
