IFC, Film Independent Renew Spirit Awards Telecast Deal Through 2020

22 February 2017 11:52 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Film Independent has renewed its exclusive agreement for IFC to telecast the annual Film Independent Spirit Awards in the U.S. through 2020.

IFC will air the 2017 awards show — co-hosted by Nick Kroll and John Mulaney — live on Saturday. IFC began airing the Spirit Awards in 1994.

IFC is the perfect home for the Film Independent Spirit Awards. They’re smart, irreverent, funny, and just crazy enough to do a live broadcast from a tent on a beach in February,” said Film Independent President Josh Welsh. “We’re thrilled to be renewing with them and look forward to making mischief together for three more years.”

Saturday’s ceremonies are the 32nd year of the awards show. Joel Gallen of Tenth Planet Productions returns for his third year as executive producer, and producer Shawn Davis returns for his fifteenth show. Danielle Federico and Andrew Schaff will co-produce the awards.

Spirit Awards Hosts Nick Kroll and John Mulaney on Friendship, Indie Films and Day Drinking

21 February 2017 5:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney are best friends who genuinely love working together; it’s not difficult to imagine them doing this for the next 40 years — particularly since the pair are fresh off a record-breaking run of “Oh, Hello on Broadway” in which they portray elderly gadflys Gil Kaizon (Kroll) and George St. Geegland (Mulaney).

Next up, they’ll be hosting the Film Independent Spirit Awards on Feb. 25, a perfect fit for the comedians who clearly know their indie films – Mulaney is a writer/producer on “Documentary Now!” while Kroll played lawyer Bernard S. Cohen in last year’s acclaimed “Loving.” Variety sat down with the duo to discuss their friendship, drinking at awards shows, and the state of the  business where, as Mulaney puts it, “The only true independent film is Atm security footage.”
