Latino, and women filmmakers having been past recipients of the top prizes. 

Winners in each category receive a $2,500 cash prize, with
their films screened in a special ceremony at the DGA Theater. Winners of the jury awards in each category
receive $1,000 and screen clips of their films at the DGA.

Recent Indie Spirit

Prize.

winners announced in November. More info on contest rules and how to apply is
