Who's among this year's best indie films?
The nominations are in for one of the biggest independent film award ceremonies in the US; the Independent Spirit Awards; and this year there's some serious competition. Leading the nominations are 'American Honey' and 'Moonlight', though the biggest snub appears to be Richard Linklater's 'Everybody Wants Some' which received no nominations at all.

After 'Everybody Wants Some!!' - the sequel to Richard Linklater's 'Dazed and Confused' - was nominated for Best Feature at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, we were all thinking it would do a great job at the Independent Spirits. But despite the critical acclaim, the limited release caused it to bomb at the box office, which must be the only explanation as to why it didn't get a chance.
April 2021 may have been one of the coldest in 60 years, but there were still enough hot releases to warm our hearts and fuel our fires.
