“For the third year, we are thrilled to continue IFP’s Gotham Independent Film Audience Award powered by Festival Genius,” said IFP executive director Joana Vicente. “For the IFP, it is the perfect opportunity to offer five publicly lauded films, which have been spotlighted on the festival circuit by the viewing public, yet another platform to garner audience support.”
