The 31st Film Independent Spirit Awards will be broadcast exclusively on IFC on February 27, 2016. For the second year, Joel Gallen of Tenth Planet Productions will return as Executive Producer of the show. Producer Shawn Davis will return for his 14th show and Rick Austin will return for his second year as producer of the show. 

“After last year’s great show we are thrilled to have Joel Gallen back as our EP,” said Josh Welsh, Film Independent President. “We are excited to be back on IFC, I can’t imagine better partners than Jen Caserta and her entire team.”

“We are pleased to continue to partner with Film Independent as the irreverent and informal approach of the Spirit Awards is a seamless fit with our ‘always on, slightly off’ brand,” said Jennifer Caserta, IFC’s President. “We are excited to celebrate the best independent films and provide an exclusive platform for what has become Hollywood’s kick off to awards season.”

2016 nominees will be announced at a press conference on Tuesday, November 24 at the W Hollywood and on spiritawards.com.
