Chlotrudis Award for Buried Treasure

The Buried Treasure is an award given by the Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film. In order to be eligible, Buried Treasure nominees had to have earned less than $250,000 in US box office. Chlotrudis created the category in order to shine a spotlight on those films the society feels deserve wider attention and a second look. The Chlotrudis Awards is an annual ceremony where the best of the previous year's independent and international film are honored.
