Airs March 4, 2006 on AMC, IFC and WE: Women's Entertainment

On March 4, Film Independent's 21st INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARDS - the yin to the Oscar�s yang - will be hosted by actress/comedienne Sarah Silverman. Held annually on the Saturday before the Oscars�, this ceremony has become the vanguard event in independent film, honoring filmmakers who bring a unique vision and spirit of independence to filmmaking.

This year, Rainbow Media offers television viewers an unprecedented, multi-faceted experience of the Awards show: the LIVE, uncensored broadcast on IFC; the re-broadcast on AMC; and the red carpet arrivals on WE: Women's Entertainment. Last year, the 20th Anniversary ceremony was hosted by Samuel L. Jackson and honored such films as Sideways, Garden State and Mean Creek.

IFC

For the tenth year, IFC renews a long-standing commitment to Hollywood's "Un-Oscars" to exclusively broadcast the ceremony LIVE from Santa Monica.

WE will broadcast an exciting live red carpet welcome: RED CARPET ARRIVALS FROM THE 2006 INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARDS to highlight the fashions, the personalities and spontaneous interactions of the ceremony's celebrity honorees and attendants.
