    Feel free to give your feedback on my ballot, everyone. Please be nice! 🙂

    Also, I did not vote on Best International Film because I hadn’t seen any of the nominees.

    Hi Teridax:

    I was thinking about signing up to vote for the Spirit Awards for next year. I know it says on the Indie Spirit Awards website that voting members get screeners sent to them for select films. If you don’t mind me asking how many screeners did you receive this year? To the best of my knowledge a few of this years nominees never had a release here in Vancouver so receiving screeners for several films would be a huge help. However, if only a few films send out screeners there’s probably no point in my signing up as I don’t want run into a situation where I’m unable to vote in several categories due to not having seen all of the nominees. If you don’t mind answering my question please I would greatly appreciate it.

    By the way I too would have voted for Jackie for Best Picture.

    I hope everyone is doing well.

    Thanks! Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you! I got sent a TON of movies, so definitely sign up! I didn’t get sent screeners for Jackie, Elle, and NONE of the “International Film” nominees. Still, it is well worth the price of joining. I still take pride in my votes for Jake Gyllenhaal and Nightcrawler in First Feature and Screenplay.
