IMDb qualifying Art Film Spirit Awards in association with Toronto Film Magazine is devoted to the spirit of indie filmmaking, discovery of artists, and arthouse film projects from all over the globe. Every edition, the winners are promoted through the magazine team and receive publicity and promotions in order to create further exposure for indie film projects and artists working in media. The members of the jury for each edition are selected from award winning artists, filmmakers, producers, writers and actors based in Toronto and all over the world. Every year, we screen the finalists of the year in our live event in Toronto.
