Film Independent Spirit Awards 2018 Nominees

Nominations have been announced for the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards and we're pretty stoked.

In typical style we’re not surprised to hear that some of our brilliant releases this year have taken out nominations for the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Amidst Hollywood’s disappointment over the past couple of months, it’s important to shed a light on the independent documentaries pioneering and celebrating social change, and the feature films that comment and criticize the toxic white masculinity rife in the industry.

Indie cinema is a medium to be most celebrated, free of the restrictions of Marvel and ludicrous box office expectations, this is where progressive and powerful ideas are given freedom to reign. We’re deeply proud of the following noms and congratulate all cast and crew involved on their brilliant stories.
