In 2009, at our 15th annual awards ceremony, Chlotrudis honored Tim Cawley's WELL-FOUNDED CONCERNS, about an unapologietic germophobe facing a devastating plague and the first blooms of love, with our Best Short Film award. Now Tim is back on the big screen in Boston with his first feature film, FROM NOTHING, SOMETHING. Tim's documentary profiles creative thinkers across a variety of disciplines and finds common methods, habits, mindsets and neuroses that help bring breakthrough ideas into being. It is a thoughtful, intimate, often funny look at the creative process -- straight from the brains of some of our culture's most accopmlished and inspiring talents. | Read more »
Signe Baumane has had two films screen as part of the Chlotrudis Short Film Festival. In 2002 she wowed us with a lovely story about a lonely housewife and her vacuum cleaner in Natasha. She was back in 2004 with a short film of more mythic proportions called Woman. Now it seems that for the first time she has brought one of her own films to Sundance. The film is called Teat Beat of Sex and it stems from the filmmaker's penchant for talking dirty at screenings. Read in interview with Signe over at The Reeler. Congratulations, Signe!
