Boston’s Imagine Magazine honored movie and media types at Tuesday’s “Imaginnaire” Awards Gala. Actress Erica McDermott, who’ll next appear in the much-anticipated Whitey Bulger biopic, emceed the celebration at the Hard Rock Cafe. Honorees included Ben Fowlie, founder of the Camden International Film Festival; Massachusetts Film Office boss Lisa Strout; CBS Boston’s Ro Dooley Webster; and New England filmmaker Tom DeNucci, who’s written and directed two films in the last three years, with another film, “Almost Mercy,” in post-production. (His “Self Storage” has an underwhelming
5 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.) DeNucci also appeared in the Showtime series “Brotherhood,” and alongside Peter Facinelli in “Loosies.” “I think my parents were more excited than I was [about the award],” DeNucci said. Imagine Magazine has held its “Imaginnaire” bash for seven years.
