Applause

Independent Film Society Chlotrudis Applauds "Applause"

World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation (World Wide) is pleased to acknowledge support for Applause by the Chlotrudis Society For Independent Film. Members of this prestigious Boston-based organization saw the film at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival and were so impressed by Paprika Steen’s performance that they’ve joined our efforts to spread word-of-mouth about the picture. Last year, Steen won the coveted Chlotrudis Career-So-Far Award honoring her memorable past work both in front and behind the camera, and she may be acknowledged again for this new film with a Chlotrudis Award nomination.
