Spirit Awards set for March 5

Awards show moved to Friday night

Film Independent announced that the 25th annual Independent Spirit Awards will be held March 5.

The milestone anniversary has prompted the org to shift the event to a Friday primetime event rather than the usual Saturday afternoon get-together in a tent on the beach in Santa Monica.

The ceremonies will be telecast live on IFC.

Film Independent will be accepting submissions beginning Monday with the early deadline of Sept. 14 and the final deadline of Oct. 6.

Eligible features must be at least 70 minutes long and cost under $20 million.

Nominations will be announced Dec. 1.
