Lucas Belvaux:

Philip Seymour HoffmanLucas Belvaux opted for the highest degree of difficulty with his threesome of films by adding actor to his job description along with writer/director. Moreover, ON THE RUN, AN AMAZING COUPLE, and AFTER THE LIFE, shot concurrently, are interlocking pieces to one puzzle, telling the same story from different perspectives in non-linear fashion. This ambitious creation, together called THE TRILOGY, received several Chlotrudis nominations, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Cast and Best Original Screenplay. For his outstanding contributions behind and in front of the camera, Chlotrudis will award Lucas Belvaux its Body of Work Award.


John O'Brien:

Agnès GodardChlotrudis will present John O’Brien its Maverick Award, given to a member of the film community who best exemplifies that description. Based in Vermont, O’Brien has mined his hometown of Tunbridge for inspiration, location shooting and even casting for his last three movies, including this year’s NOSEY PARKER, also a nominee in the Buried Treasure category. His films sift non-fiction and storytelling together in Mike Leigh fashion to create vivid northern New England tableaus.




Ellen Page:

Thom FitzgeraldEllen Page is a young Canadian actress who caught the attention of Chlotrudis in her role of Joanie in the Award-winning MARION BRIDGE. That film, written by Daniel MacIvor and directed by Wiebke von Carolsfeld, won the coveted Buried Treasure Award last year, and was also honored with the award for Best Cast, of which Ellen was an integral part. She followed up her role in BRIDGE with a pivotal role in Daniel MacIvor's ensemble gem WILBY WONDERFUL.

With two strong parts behind her, Chlotrudis now boldly predicts that Ellen Page will be one of the most talked about young indie actors of the year when her next project sees the light of day later this year. After causing a sensation at Sundance in January 2005, the film HARD CANDY was picked up by Lion's Gate Films. Page stars in this controversial film about a fourteen-year-old girl who meets a possible sexual predator on the internet, then in person, before returning to his apartment with him. From there, all bets are off. Page is an actress with the depth and skill to handle this hot button role and we await HARD CANDY eagerly.

Ellen Page comes to Boston this weekend to celebrate the Brattle Theatre's theatrical run of WILBY WONDERFUL, and to accept the Breakthrough Award at the 11th Annual Chlotrudis Awards Ceremony.
