vote for surrogate valentine in the gotham independent film audience award



Big congratulations to Surrogate Valentine. David Boyle's indie pseudo-romantic comedy road trip flick, starring musician Goh Nakamura as Goh Nakamura, picked up the Grand Jury Prize over the weekend at the 12th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Surrogate Valentine is also among the films currently vying for the Gotham Independent Film Audience Award, to be determined through online vote. It's in pretty darn good company, including Lisette Marie Flanary's documentary One Voice and producer Karen Chien's Circumstance.

Since many of the people involved in Surrogate Valentine are dear friends of mine, I thought I'd lend a hand and ask for your vote. If you've seen the film, like it, and want to help choose the Gotham Awards finalist, login and cast your online vote here

The second round of voting will begin on November 10 and will feature the top 5 films from round one. The winner of the Festival Genius Audience Award will be announced at the 21st Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 28.
