Tonight, the IFP will hold the 11th annual Gotham Awards, the org’s biggest fund-raiser.

John Cameron Mitchell’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” leads the pack of nominees, which also includes Michael Cuesta’s “L.I.E.,” Henry Bean’s “The Believer,” Dan Minahan’s “Series 7: The Contenders,” David Wain’s “Wet Hot American Summer” and Randy Redroad’s “The Doe Boy.” The ceremony will take place at Chelsea’s Pier 60.
