nominees//26th GOTHAM INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



The nominees for the 26th Gotham Awards, which celebrate independent film, have been announced, with Manchester by the Sea leading the pack with four nominations, including Best Film.

Presented by the Independent Filmmaker Project, the Gotham Awards are generally a good barometer of which indie fare could end up garnering some Oscar attention later in the season.

Other films enjoying a boost of continued support with these nods include Moonlight and Certain Women, two films that have had successful festival runs thus far.

The 26th Gotham Awards will be handed out on November 28, 2016 at a ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan.
