The controversy over the Gotham's idea of independence in film might still be raging on, but the Gotham's have declared their party independence with an official after party going up against indieWIRE and Kodak's usual soiree. Adding another layer of intrigue the indieWIRE event honors the stunning success of the online mag's 10 years. Will the New York indie community eschew the elite, ticket holders-only, event at an undisclosed location in support of a traditional, populist favorite? Or will the allure of the velvet rope win out? Current polling has the official party drawing a strong celebrity and exec contingent with the Kodak/indieWIRE party pulling in a wider community of support. Only the night will tell.
