Chlotrudis Awards Ceremony will be Dazzled with a touch of Sparkle Motion!

The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film is thrilled to announce our first guest to be honored at the 16th Annual Chlotrudis Awards, March 21, 5pm at the Brattle Theatre. Beth Grant is exactly the kind of actor Chlotrudis loves to honor. Like Maury Chaykin and Alberta Watson, previous recipients of the “Career-so-far” award, Beth Grant is one of those people whose name you may not be familiar with, but whose face and delightfully uptight performances you will recognize from dozens of independent and mainstream films, and television. Beth Grant is the kind of performer who rarely leads the cast, but whose presence is sure to enhance anything she is in. This Alabama native has appeared in well over 100 films and television productions, despite the fact that she didn’t get her start in acting until her late thirties. For Chlotrudis members her most well-known films surely include past Chlotrudis notables NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE and SAFE. She has also appeared in mainstream, studio films such as FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, RAIN MAN, SPEED, and TO WONG FOO, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, JULIE NEWMAR. Her numerous television appearances include “The Office,” “Pushing Daisies,” “Wonderfalls,” “Six Feet Under,’ “Everwood,” and “Malcolm in the Middle.” She most recently appeared on screen in the acclaimed film CRAZY HEART, and has appearances in another ten films that are in varying states of pre and post production. In addition to acting, which is her first love, Beth Grant has ventured into production, with her latest effort, HERPES BOY, currently enjoying the festival circuit. But surely, what Beth Grant is most widely known for among Chlotrudis members and their allies, is her classic performance as Kittie Farmer in DONNIE DARKO. While we may be “…beginning to doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion,” our commitment to Beth Grant is as strong as ever.

Tickets for the 16th Annual Chlotrudis Awards Ceremony are $15 for Chlotrudis and Brattle members; $20 for the general public, and will be on sale online at the Brattle Theatre’s website on Friday, February 5.
