28th Independent Spirit Awards winners & scene

Film Flam Flummox


David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook was the big winner at Film Independent's 28th Saturday-before-Oscar celebration of American independent film, again taking place in a tent on Santa Monica beach. The full list of winners is as follows:

But as with every year, the winners of the trophies is but a part of the whole story, for the casual, laid-back, highly unpretentious atmosphere of the event makes this awards season stop a true overall experience and not merely an awards show, with all the activity and mingling in the area around the tent just as celebratory and entertaining as the goings-on inside. Here are some visual highlights from my live Instagram and Twitter coverage today.
