In 1986, the ceremony is renamed as we know it today. Since, awards are given for Best Feature, Best Screen Play or Best Documentary… Their mission is to support the artist community who represent diversity, innovation and new visions for the industry. Filmmakers can receive important help from Films independent society including financial support or audience building for their projects…
This year, the 32nd edition takes place in Los Angeles for one day on Saturday 25th February 2017. The festivities will take place on the beach of Santa Monica in California.
