BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD top Chlotrudis list with Seven Nominations Including Best Movie and Best Director!
The nominees for the 19th annual Chlotrudis Awards were announced tonight at a special party at Post 390, attended by Chlotrudis members, guests and various folk active in the Boston film scene. 2012 was a good year for American indie films, 18 of the 35 unique films nominated coming from the U.S. Those 18 films made up 41 of the total nominations. Films from Frances had the next largest impact with 7 nominations from 3 films, and surprisingly, Belgium took in 6 nominations with just 2 films. All-in-all, 19 countries were represented among the nominees. Despite the high number of U.S. films garnering nominations, only 2 of the films nominated for Best Movie was U.S.-made: BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD and THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER. | Read more »

Of course, it’s more fun if you do, so please read the following directions, and if you qualify… I urge you to take part! The more members who nominate, the better and more reflective of our organization are our awards.
