The 2017 awards season isn’t quite finished, folks.

The 23rd Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film announced their winners on Sunday and the Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight picked up another win with the group, along with Director (Barry Jenkins), Supporting Actor (Oscar winner Mahershala Ali) and Ensemble. Oscar nominee Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress for Elle and Joel Edgerton won Best Actor for Loving.

The technical categories spread the wealth over a handful of foreign language films with Cemetery of Splendor winning Cinematography, Mountains May Depart winning Editing and The Handmaiden winning Production Design. Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-nominated film 13TH won Documentary.

Presenters and guests included many members and friends of the Boston film community, among them indie filmmakers and critics, programmers from the Independent Film Festival of Boston, the Boston Jewish Film Festival, Wicked Queer Boston’s LGBTQ Film Festival, the Brattle Theater and consulate staff of the French Cultural Center.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
