Watch The Gothams Live Monday, November 29th at 8PM!

It’s time to gather your family and friends. Bring on the food. And break out the good glasses for a giant glass of bubbly to toast another wonderful year….

No, we’re not talking about Thanksgiving.

In just five days, the 20th Anniversary IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards – the biggest awards show of the indie film world – will be streamed live on

That’s right, wherever you are in the world, you too can attend the Gothams in its entirety this year. And just like those celebrating here in New York, feel free to meet, chat, and connect with other film lovers to discuss the films and nominees. The fresh faces. And of course, gossip about what everyone is wearing!

Confirmed presenters at the awards this year include: Julianne Moore, Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg,Barbara Kopple, Anthony Mackie, Leighton Meester, Rosie Perez, Sam Rockwell, John Turturro and Michelle Williams. And, like any true film fan, you can be on the lookout to be the first to discover the stars of tomorrow today.

As everyone knows, there are no rules in independent film. So watch in your pajamas if you must. Make it interesting by breaking out the ballots. Or follow the lead of Gotham hosts Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson who suggest “that every time either of them says the word “independent,” everyone at home watching or attending the awards themselves must take a shot.”

And remember, the party doesn’t stop at the stroke of midnight. Nominated films are still in theatres. On VOD. Available directly from filmmakers’ websites. So, make your New Year’s resolution early to be a champion of independent film every day and all year long, supporting the filmmakers and artists you see here tonight.
