Independent Spirit Awards will be held February 23, 2013!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the Independent Spirit Awards are consistently my favorite of all the awards shows/precursors during the slow march to the Oscars (and most of the time, I honestly prefer it to the Academy Awards anyway). Of course, this means I get irrationally excited for the show well in advance of it actually occurring, so this news from The Hollywood Reporter here on the dates for the show is a nice tidbit for me. You can see the details after the jump, but feel free to speculate on what indie flicks will catch Film Independent’s fancy this year. You can find more below…

Here’s the most interesting bit from the story:

As of Tuesday, Film Independent is beginning the process of accepting submissions. The regular deadline for submissions is Sept. 18 and the final deadline is Oct. 16.
