Indie Film Project names Miller Gotham Open Palm winner

Director Rebecca Miller will receive this year’s Gotham Open Palm Award from the Independent Feature Project. Miller recently made her helming debut with “Angela.”

The Open Palm is a special Gotham Award that honors a new filmmaker. Catherine Tait, the IFP’s exec director, credited Miller’s film as revealing “a distinctly original cinematic vision.”

“Angela” is the story of two young sisters and their manic-depressive mother. At the Sundance Film Festival the film won the Filmmakers Trophy in drama and a cinematography award. “Angela” has yet to snare a distributor.

Until “Angela,” Miller, the daughter of playwright Arthur Miller, was best known as an actress, with roles in “Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle,” “Consenting Adults” and “Regarding Henry.”

Meanwhile, another 18 feature films and 22 shorts have been added to the lineup of the 17th Independent Feature Film Market since the initial slate was unveiled July 12, according to the Independent Feature Project.

The total number of entries at the IFFM (set for Sept. 17-24) now stands at 408, including 98 features, 97 shorts, 94 works in progress and 119 scripts. The total represents a 23% increase over the 1994 slate, according to market director Rachel Shapiro.
