HOLLYWOOD — IFP’s annual Gotham Awards, set for Dec. 2, are moving to the Cipriani Wall Street, the org announced Monday.
The juried awards honor independently distributed American features “made with an economy of means.” Submissions are accepted until Sept. 22.
“New York is the home of independent film, so it’s exciting to bring the Gotham Awards to a classic New York venue like Cipriani Wall Street,” said Michelle Byrd, executive director of IFP. “It will provide a spectacular setting for celebrating the best in independent film.”
IFP also plans a series of filmmaker events and screenings pegged to the 18th Gotham Awards nominees. Noms will be announced Oct. 20.
The IFP is the oldest and largest org of independent filmmakers in the U.S., founded in 1979 as a satellite program of the New York Film Festival.
