CHLOTRUDIS NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED


I always keep an eye out for these. If I had an awards group all of my own, it'd be kinda like Chlotrudis. Not that all of their choices mirror mine, just that they seem to represent a similar perspective on the state of modern cinema. Their choices are limited to independent film, which provides some overlooked people and films with some well-deserved nominations.
