Celebrate this year's most exceptional visual storytelling.

2021 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Thursday, April 22

Cocktail Reception – 9:00 pm ET / 6:00 pm PT
Awards Ceremony – 10:00 pm ET / 7:00 pm PT

The Film Independent Spirit Awards is not only the premiere awards show for independent film, it serves as Film Independent’s annual fundraising gala.

Film Independent, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) arts organization, is dedicated to promoting and supporting independent films and storytellers. Spirit Awards attendees directly support our mission to champion a community  of artists who are leading the way to a more equitable and just future.

In these unique times, we won’t be celebrating the 36th annual Spirit Awards on the beach in Santa Monica – but we will be celebrating! We hope you will join us on April 22 for a very special experience: the first ever virtual Spirit Awards.
