NaFF Films Nab Independent Spirit Nominations

2009 Opening Night Presentation, (500) Days of Summer is nominated for Best Picture. Additionally the film was nominated for Best Screenplay and Joseph Gordon-Levitt was nominated for Best Actor. Audience Award Winner That Evening Sun picked up two nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Mia Wasikowska - note: she'll be playing Alice in Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland) and Best Supporting Actor (Ray McKinnon). Finally, Dia Sokol - whose directorial debut Sorry, Thanks made its Southeast US Premiere at the fest, is nominated for the Piaget Producers Award for two of her other films Beeswax and Nights & Weekends

If there's a surprise snub in all of this its the fact that Film Independent was aware enough of That Evening Sun to nominate two of its actors but they failed to nominated Hal Holbrook in a career-capping performance that some think may bring him an Oscar nomination.

Still, all in all a pretty good showing for NaFF's class of 2009.
