‘Swan,’ ‘Valentine’ up for Gotham Awards
“Black Swan,” “Blue Valentine,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Let Me In” and “Winter’s Bone” were nominated for best picture at the Gotham Independent Film Awards.
“The Gotham Awards celebrate the collective breath of independent cinema,” Joana Vicente, executive director of IFP, said in a statement.
“Ranging from the small gems produced on micro-budgets to extraordinary films from specialty distributors, the nominees all share the type of creative vision and risk-taking that are a hallmark of independent film.”
“It’s also my pleasure to report that there are more female directors nominated this year than any year before,” she said.
