35 scripts, work-in-progress docus on tap

The 23rd annual IFP Market kicked off Sunday with Todd Field’s directorial debut “In the Bedroom,” followed by a party at Metronome. Screenings, seminars and other events begin today.

The seventh annual No Borders co-production market, an offshoot of the main program, will also get under way this week at the Tribeca Grand hotel. A total of 35 scripts and work-in-progress documentaries will be presented this year to a group of international producers and funding orgs.

Tonight, the IFP will hold the 11th annual Gotham Awards, the org’s biggest fund-raiser. Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman and other New York-based industryites will receive prizes at the event, to be hosted by Andy Dick. Most of the honors have already been announced in advance, but the drums will roll with the announcement of the winner of the Open Palm for first-time feature filmmakers.

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.
