IFP/West adds pair of kudos

New nods spotlight smaller films; Oct. 13 submission date set

Independent Feature Project/West executive director Dawn Hudson announced Tuesday the creation of two kudos categories for the 16th annual Independent Spirit Awards: documentary and feature under $500,000.

“IFP/West’s primary mission is to support quality independent films that are made with limited resources and often limited releases,” Hudson said. “Our new categories should bring attention to those smaller films.”

In other Indie Spirit news, IFP/West has determined Oct. 13 as the final submission date. All entries must be at least 70 minutes long and received no later than 5 p.m.

For consideration, films must exhibit or possess, original, provocative subject matter; unique vision; economy with particular attention paid to total budget and individual compensation; and a percentage of independent financing.

Awards will be presented March 24 in Santa Monica.
