CHLOTRUDIS SOCIETY FOR INDEPENDENT FILM ANNOUNCES 2017 NOMINATIONS – ‘CALL ME BY YOUR NAME’ TOPS ALL

Call Me By Your NameNominations for the 24th annual Chlotrudis Awards were finalized by the film group’s nominating committee this past weekend. Luca Guadagnino’s lush coming of age CALL ME BY YOUR NAME was dominant among the 36 films nominated, winning 9 nods, including Director, Production Design and Best Actor. Placing second was I, TONYA, starring Margot Robbie, which earned 7 nominations including Best Actress and Editing.

Both films were also among the Best Movie nominations. The other films rounding out that category were Japanese legend Koreeda’s AFTER THE STORM; LITTLE BOXES, starring Nelsan Ellis in his last role; and Jim Jarmusch’s PATERSON, which was the 3rd most nominated film, garnering 6 nods.

More than 20% of the nominated films this year were helmed by women, including BEACH RATS’ Eliza Hittman, who earned a spot in the Best Director category. Other films with female directors that got nominated were MUDBOUND, Dee Rees’ stunning sophomore effort; FACES PLACES, legendary filmmaker Agnes Vardas’ likely last film; and the charming feline doc KEDI, Ceyda Korun’s debut feature film.

In the Society’s most prestigious category, the Buried Treasure, the nominees are: DAVE MADE A MAZE, a unique adventure film about a frustrated artist and his creation; the compelling documentary THE DEATH AND LIFE OF MARSHA P. JOHNSON, about an icon of the queer and trans movements; Dee Rees’ MUDBOUND, a story of 2 families working the same land in 40s Mississippi; PATTI CAKE$, whose eponymous white lead dreams of being a rapper; the latest from the Dardennes brothers, psychological drama THE UNKNOWN GIRL; and WINDOW HORSES, an animiated film based on a graphic novel written by its Asian-Canadian director.

The Buried Treasure is the only category with eligibility requirements: nominated films must have earned less than $250,000 in its U.S. theatrical run. Members submit 1 film they feel strongly was given distributional short shrift and deserve a wider audience. Once the final ballot is set, all members voting in the category must verify that they have watched at least 5 of the nominated films.

The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film highlights its commitment to independent and foreign film in style, holding its CHLOTRUDIS AWARDS ceremony in early spring. This latest edition will be an intimate dinner held Sunday March 18th at the Lenox Hotel, and the public is invited to join Chlotrudis and members of Boston’s film community.
