Mark your calendars! The 18th Annual Chlotrudis Awards ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, March 18, 5pm at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA. This gala event with a grass roots twist features the announcement of the Society's picks of the best films and performances of 2011, musical numbers, special tributes, and special awards presented to guest filmmakers. We hope to announce our first guest next week, and it's very exciting!
In the meantime, Chlotrudis member will be gathering next weeked on January 21, to create the ballot for this year's awards. Once the ballot is set, Chlotrudis members will begin watching the nominated films in earnest to prepare for voting. It's usually hard to predict what film will win the coveted Chotrudis Award for Best Movie -- or even more exciting, Buried Treasure! Do you have any guesses?
This is what I get for being too busy to post a movie listing for the week or even looking at the new releases this week until Monday morning! Hiro-kazu Kore-eda's (STILL WALKING, AFTER LIFE) AIR DOLL starring the divine Doona Bae, opened this week at the Kendall Square Cinema. SEE IT NOW!
But don't see it on Thursday night, because the king of filth, John Waters, will be at the Boston Public Library at 6pm to talk about his new book Role Models with author Scott Heim (who wrote the novel Mysterious Skin). You won't want to miss that. More details here.
