about us



Below is a list of all the eligible independent films for the year 2007. Many visitors to the site have e-mailed asking for recommendations and/or reviews of independent movies. The members of the Chlotrudis Awards Nominating Committee see lots of independent films and on the Chlotrudis Comments page, we will share our thoughts or reviews of the year's movies. Underlined films lead to Chlotrudis reviews. If you have a suggestion, or a film you'd like to see commented on by Chlotrudis Members, send us an e-mail. Now let's get on with the comments!

Take a look at the reviews for 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, and 2001
