WINTER’S BONE Wins 2 Gotham Independent Film Awards

Winter’s Bone, the drama about a teenage girl struggling to keep her family together while trying to find her missing, drug-dealing father, took top honors at last night’s the Independent Filmmaker Project 20th Anniversary Gotham Independent Film Awards ceremony in New York City, winning both the Best Feature and Best Ensemble Performance Awards.

Thirty films competed in seven categories for awards aimed at recognizing excellence in independent film. Most of the winners have played at major festivals such as Sundance and have had at least a small amount of theatrical distribution.

Other winners include The Oath for Best Documentary, Kevin Asch, writer and director of Holy Rollers for Breakthrough Director and Ronald Bronstein for Breakthrough Performance for his work in Daddy Longlegs. The documentary Waiting For Superman won the Festival Genius Audience Award while the Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You Award went to the drama Littlerock.
