    Hi there,

    I was wondering if there were any members of Film Independent on this forum (that get to vote for the Spirit awards). I am considering a membership for next year, and I was wondering if there were any perks for those living outside of LA such as screeners sent in the mail (i.e. do you get most nominated movies or only a few)?

    I apologize if this was asked before, I could not find what I was looking for by searching.

    Thank you!

    I joined two years ago. I do not live anywhere near LA or NY so the screenings and Q&As did not help me one bit. But the worst offense to me was the handful (and I mean handful) of screeners I received. I received not one screener from A24, Sony Pictures Classics (who dominated that year with several films), Fox Searchlight or The Weinstein Company. I did not receive one screener in any of the major categories. Instead, I got all 5 for Best First Feature, which were a bunch of duds, one or two for Best Documentary, and I think one from the John Cassavetes category. Sure I got to vote, but I was kinda hoping to receive screeners for all the films and it didn’t happen.

    Thanks a lot for the reply. You’ve confirmed my fears, although just being able to vote is cool in itself. Do you know how many members they have approximately?

    No I don’t.
