IFP also will partner again with MoMA to present the Best Film Not Playing At a Theatre Near You public screening series in November. This sixth competitive category awards the winning filmmaker a grant through Royal Bank of Canada’s Emerging Artists Project.
“We are always proud to present the Gotham Awards as a showcase of the year's best in independent film," said IFP executive director Joana Vicente. “As the true home of indie film, it is our goal to shine a light on these projects and all the hard work behind each film. And the Gothams are always an exciting opportunity to get a glimpse of the nominees to come throughout award season."
The Gothams are typically the first industry awards given as the kudos season begins late in the year.
