The 18th Annual Chlotrudis Independent Film Awards
March 18, 2012
The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film will honor legendary Canadian director Atom Egoyan, during the 18th Annual Chlotrudis Awards. Mr. Egoyan will be in attendance to accept his special award and to celebrate his achievements as a filmmaker. Chlotrudis is honored to bring Mr. Egoyan to Boston to bestow upon him its special Hall of Fame award, and to celebrate his influential and compelling filmography. Atom Egoyan has been exploring the hows and whys of truth, identity, memory, fidelity and loss, through the medium of film for over three decades. After garnering several Chlotrudis nominations, including a Best Movie and Best Director nod for The Sweet Hereafter in 1998, Mr. Egoyan was honored with a special Directing award by the Society. Often heralded for his unique visual style, his later films, Where The Truth Lies and Chloe have received Chlotrudis nods for Best Visual Design and Best Cinematography, respectively. Mr. Egoyan films tackle difficult subjects, and Ararat, one of his most epic films, showed up on several Chlotrudis members’ top film lists for 2002. Join us in celebrating the achievements of Atom Egoyan at the 18th Annual Chlotrudis Awards! This gala event with a grass roots twist features the announcement of the Society’s picks for the best films and performances of 2011, with entertaining musical numbers, tributes, and special awards presented to guest filmmakers.
