A Message from the President

Dear Chlotrudis Members and Supporters, 

What were you doing 20 years ago?  I was planning a movie-themed party around the Oscars, but irritated at the slate of nominees.  Forrest Gump, really?  Even now, that still irks me.  Back then; I decided that my friends and I could do better.  So I turned my party into an independent film society. And ever since, Chlotrudis has thrown a hell of a shindig to celebrate independent film.  We wouldn’t still be going strong without the support of members like you.

This year’s annual fund is all about our 20 years celebrating film.  In addition to putting together a doozy of an Awards Ceremony to be held on Sunday, March 16, 4pm (that’s one hour early – don’t be late!) we will be celebrating in a variety of ways online via Facebook and here on our website.  There will be trivia, monthly member top 20 lists, reminiscences, member profiles, and video greetings from past honorees.  All of these activities will build up to our awards ceremony, which will be bigger, and bolder than ever before.

To achieve our goals we are aiming for a big target that I hope you will help us hit.  Our project goal is $2,000, which is a bit of a stretch for Chlotrudis, but still a very reachable amount.  Every dollar you donate will go directly to funding our programs and events. Your tax-deductible contribution will help Chlotrudis to flourish—supporting our educational programs and many film-related endeavors. 

We depend on your support to keep the Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film going! So please show your support for our work by making a donation today. Donations to Chlotrudis are fully tax-deductible and it’s easy to do.  Either send a check to “Chlotrudis Society, PO Box 301237, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130,” or visit our webpage (http://chlotrudis.org/organization/membership) where you will find a “donate via PayPal” button at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for supporting the Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film; your support makes everything we do possible.

Warmest regards,

Michael Colford
