Filmmaker Tanya Hamilton has been nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for "Night Catches Us," a locally shot drama that opens in theaters on Friday.

The film, set in the '70s, deals with a man who returns to his old neighborhood, where he used to run with the Black Panthers. It was shot around Germantown last year and stars Anthony Mackie ("The Hurt Locker") Kerry Washington ("Ray") and Wendell Pierce ("The Wire").

At 2 p.m. Sunday Hamilton, who also wrote and produced the film, which features an original score by The Roots, will answer questions after the noon screening of the film at the AMC Loews Cherry Hill. The Q&A will take place during a lunch gathering at the Empire Buffet (2100 Route 38) across from the theater.
