Gotham Awards set date

November ceremony kicks off awards season

The New York-based Independent Filmmaker Project will hold its 22nd Gotham Independent Film Awards on Nov. 26.

For many in the industry, IFP’s trophyfest kicks off awards season. In recent years the ceremony has got the kudos buzz ball rolling on pics including “The Hurt Locker,” “Winter’s Bone” and “Half Nelson.” Last year’s Gotham winners included “Beginners” and “The Tree of Life.”

IFP annually selects a jury of 25 industry pros to hand out awards in six competitive categories — feature, documentary, ensemble perf, breakthrough helmer, breakthrough actor and film that hasn’t yet secured distribution. There’s also an audience award that was inaugurated two years ago.

Submissions for most of the competitive categories are now open, with a deadline set for Sept. 14. Later in the fall IFP will announce its annual round of tribute honorees. Last year’s batch included Charlize Theron, Tom Rothman, David Cronenberg and Gary Oldman.

Nominees will be named Oct. 18. The awards ceremony will be held at Cipriani Wall Street in downtown New York.
