HOLLYWOOD and NEW YORK – PostWorks (
) today proudly congratulated several of its clients for their wins at the 17th Annual Gotham Awards Ceremony, held last week in New York at Brooklyn’s Steiner Studios and set to appear tonight on NYC TV at 9pm EST.
Established in 1991 by IFP, the nation’s largest membership organization of independent filmmakers, the Gotham Awards are among the leading awards for independent films, and the first major honors of the film awards season.
The honorees included Michael Moore’s “SiCKO,” which was named Best Documentary, as well as Craig Zobel, who brought home the Breakthrough Director Award for his work on the comedic feature “Great World of Sound.” PostWorks’ support for these two films included producing the Digital Intermediate (DI) for each of them.
Another honoree, “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead,” which shared the Best Ensemble Cast Award, was edited at Orbit Digital, PostWorks’ mobile editorial service and support company.
Last year’s Breakthrough Director and Best Feature Gotham Awards went to Ryan Fleck and his film “Half Nelson,” a 2006 festival favorite and a current Academy Award nominee, for which PostWorks also produced the 2K DI.
According to IFP, the Gothams will air nationally on satellite via the Documentary Channel on Dec. 8 at 8pm EST. IFP is also producing a one-hour documentary entitled “Zoom In: Independent Stories from the 2007 Gotham Awards,” which will include red carpet coverage, profiles and interviews with many of the nominees, and recipients of the ceremony’s tributes. The film will be available on-demand beginning Dec. 10, and at no additional cost to the seven million subscribers of Netflix.
