Celebrate on the beach in Santa Monica, alongside top talent and industry leaders

The Film Independent Spirit Awards is not only the premiere awards show for independent film, it is Film Independent’s annual fundraising gala. Attendees directly support our mission to champion original, artist-driven storytelling and its ability to enrich and influence our culture.

We invite you to stand behind our cause through the purchase of a Spirit Awards table or by joining our annual giving group, Arts Circle, at the Spirit level or above to receive tickets to the big event.

Film Independent is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) arts organization dedicated to promoting and supporting independent films and storytellers.
