Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

The Film Independent Spirit Awards are a celebration of all things out there, from low-budget films to deep cut references to sandwiches in Hustlers. That’s why The A.V.

In the clip above, you’ll see answers from Mary Kay Place, Davy Rothbart, Driveways’ Hong Chau and Andrew Ahn, the Wild Nights With Emily team, Jon M. Chu, and more. Long live independent film.
