It's back to the white tent on the Santa Monica beach the day before the Oscars, February 23, for the indie alternative awards show--a favorite for many each year--Film Independent's Spirit Awards. The 28th Indie Spirits will be exclusively broadcast the same night on IFC after its live taping. The nominees will be announced November 27; and Film Independent members are eligible to vote.

FI co-president Josh Welsh states, “Ours is a one-of-a-kind awards show that allows us to not take ourselves too seriously. I'm excited to see what our longtime executive producer Diana Zahn-Storey and her amazing production team have in store for this year’s broadcast on IFC."
Among last year's winners were "The Artist" (Best Director: Michael Hazanavicius, Male Lead: Jean Dujardin, Cinematographer: Guillaume Schiffman), "The Descendants" (Best Screenplay: Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, Jim Rash; Supporting Female: Shailene Woodley), "My Week With Marilyn" (Best Female Lead: Michelle Williams), "Beginners" (Best Supporting Male: Christopher Plummer), "A Separation" (Best International Film: Dir. Asghar Farhadi) and "Margin Call" (Best First Feature: Dir. J.C. Chandor).
