The Gotham Awards are American film awards, presented annually to the makers of independent films at a ceremony in New York City, New York (New York City was first nicknamed "Gotham" by native son Washington Irving, in an issue of Salmagundi, published on November 11, 1807).[1] Part of the Independent Feature Project (IFP), "the largest membership organization in the United States dedicated to independent film" (founded in 1979), the awards were inaugurated in 1991 as a means of showcasing and honoring films made primarily in the Northeastern region of the United States.[2]


In 2004, the scope of the awards broadened to include the international film scene, when the number of awards presented increased from six awards – given to films and those involved in making them primarily from Northeast U.S. film community – to nine awards, including in its broader scope films originating in Los Angeles, California, and international locations as well.[citation needed]
