Marion Bridge Director Wiebke von Carolsfeld to Attend Chl

Nominated in three categories, Marion Bridge is exactly the type of film Chlotrudis likes to champion. A tiny independent, family drama with a lot of appeal that because of the nature of the business can't get wide exposure. The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film takes notice though. Marion Bridge received nods in the Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cast, and Buried Treasure categories.

We're thrilled to announce that Wiebke von Carolsfeld, director of Marion Bridge, will be on hand to receive the Chlotrudis "Someone to Watch" Award. Marion Bridge is Wiebke�s first feature as a director. She won the City TV Award for Best First Feature at the Toronto International Film Festival and was nominated by the Director�s Guild for outstanding Achievement in Direction for her work on the movie.

She has made two award winning short films as a director, �from morning on I waited yesterday� and �spiral bound�, which have screened at festivals all across Canada, the United States as well as in Europe. In 2002, she was the Director Observer on Atom Egoyan�s feature Ararat.

Marion Bridge was distributed in the U.S. by Film Movement, whose founder and CEO, Larry Meistrich, will also be in attendance at the March 28 event. Could star Molly Parker make an appearance? We've got our fingers crossed.
