AIFAs Announce NoBudge Film Award Noms

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AMERICAN INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS ANNOUNCE THE NOMINEES FOR THE NOBUDGE FILM AWARD

NEW YORK CITY, NY, FEBRUARY 17, 2017 – Together with Kentucker Audley, distinguished founder of NoBudge.com, the American Independent Film Awards are pleased to announce the five finalists in the NoBudge film category for the first (online) edition of what will become our annual ceremony for American independent cinema.

The nominations are:

  • Claire Carré’s Embers
  • Bingham Bryant and Kyle Molzan’s For the Plasma
  • Benjamin Crotty’s Fort Buchanan
  • Stephen Cone’s Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party
  • Robert G. Putka’s Mad

Created in the philosophy of micro-indie filmmaking and in recognition of Kentucker’s mandate, this award category focuses on films that were not invited to top tier fests, but nonetheless participated in the American indie film discourse of the past year and deserve year-end recognition and merit. These films also qualify in all other AIFA categories. Films nominated in this category are selected and then voted on by an independent committee whose members have watched all five selected films.
