Izzard to host Indie Spirit Awards

Annual indie awards to take place March 5

Film Independent has tapped Eddie Izzard as master of ceremonies for the 25th Film Independent Spirit Awards on March 5.

The event’s moved this year to LA Live in downtown Los Angeles from its usual beachside location in Santa Monica and will take place in the evening rather than the afternoon. Ceremonies will air Live on the Independent Film Channel.

“The Spirit Awards are known for celebrating filmmakers who can challenge audiences with their original storytelling and art, and the same applies to Eddie,” said Film Independent Executive Director Dawn Hudson.

Izzard will next be seen in the independent film “Every Day” opposite Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt and Carla Cugino, and the documentary “Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story.”
