IFC will televise the Film Independent Spirit Awards, which will take place in their familiar Santa Monica tent Feb. 23.
The cabler will tape the awards for air at 10 p.m. that night. Diana Zahn-Storey will exec produce for the 17th time, with Chris Donovan directing and producing with Shawn Davis and John Hamilton.
“We are thrilled to return to the singular and celebratory setting of the Santa Monica beach to laud the freshest talent working in film today,” Film Independent co-prexy Sean Mc Manus said.
Nominees for the Indie Spirit Awards will be announced Nov. 27 at the W Hotel.
