Attending the Spirit Awards

The Film Independent Spirit Awards is not only the premiere awards show for independent film and television, 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.
